Choosing a School:

Select a college that meets your needs and your lifestyle. This will let you take full advantage of your educational experience.

The work you put into researching your options and planning for your education will definitely pay off. If you are in high school, start planning as early as ninth or tenth grade.

You’ll need time to gather information about:

  • The campus and campus-life
  • Admissions requirements
  • Education expenses: tuition, dorms, transportation, books and supplies, etc.
  • Financial aid programs: application process and deadlines
  • Class schedules and catalogs
  • Tests you may be required to take
  • Application requirements and deadlines

The more time you give yourself, the better chance you have of finding the program that fits your needs.
