Choosing A College

Choosing a college to attend can be a tough decision. Many factors can influence your decision to apply to a college or not, such as whether they have programs that interest you, the college size, and location.

Here are some tips to help you narrow your college search.

  •  Visit college web sites to learn more about their academic programs, locations, tuition and room & board costs.
  • Arrange campus visits through college admissions offices. This lets you experience a college campus, meet current students, check out college facilities, and maybe even sit in on a real college class.
  • Work with your high school guidance counselor and family to narrow down the list of colleges that interest you.

You can also consider these issues to help you hone in on the schools that are the best fit for you.

Chances are that there are many colleges that will suit you. Be open-minded and willing to consider a wide range of options. You may discover that the school that winds up being the best fit is one that wasn't initially on your list!
