Prepare for and take the official ACT/SAT tests.

Your test score determines your admission status and determines your scholarship qualification. Take the test as early and as often as possible.

Take honors, AP, or concurrent enrollment classes.

These classes not only prepare you for more rigorous college courses, they also count toward your college credit load and are less expensive.

Explore your options and tour campus.

Even though your intended major might be available at multiple colleges, it’s important to find the right fit for you and your educational and career goals.

Plan on how to pay for college.

There are multiple ways to pay for college. Don’t delay your preparation and miss out on opportunities.
