FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 17, 2014) Parts of two chapters of ‚"Getting In," the state's college planning guide, are now available in audio on the website of the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).
The audio versions include Chapter One and the first part of Chapter Two. Chapter One is a guide to the college admissions process, while the first part of Chapter Two helps students and parents navigate the financial aid application process.
Elaine Hall, a counselor at the Kentucky School for the Blind in Louisville, welcomes the addition to kheaa.com.
"As many students and parents and adults have learned, the application process for college can be very daunting," she said. "The online audio publication will enable blind and visually impaired students and adults to have access and information from any home or school setting. It will be an invaluable resource."
KHEAA is the state agency that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses.
