No matter what year of school you are in, it is important to take time to check college websites. By doing that, you will learn what their admissions and scholarship requirements are – including the high school classes they require, test scores as well as other requirements. By checking these sites when you are still in your junior or senior year, you will have time to meet the college requirements.
Certainly paying for college can be a major factor in selecting a college or university. Don’t assume that private colleges are too expensive. Be sure to check out their websites and use the net price calculator. You may be surprised at how affordable many private colleges can be.
Finally, check college websites for the best days and times to visit. Registering for college visits has been streamlined and can usually all be done online.
