Make Your College List

There are different types of colleges. Identify your options by looking at degrees offered, whether it’s located in a city or rural area, potential costs, distance from home, etc. Create a list of your top ten college choices, including deadlines and required admission items for each school. You should have this list done and ready to use ideally by the end of your junior year.

I am here now

I need help understanding college options and how to start my search.
I have a good idea of colleges I want to apply to but I need help creating my college list.
Done! I have my list of ten possible colleges.

Tip: Talk to your teacher or school counselor about available resources for your college search. Contact college admission officials, research the universities’ websites, and if possible, visit college campuses.
