Seniors…It’s decision time!

It’s time to make your final college decision! If you’re still not sure which school is the best fit, gather up your college acceptance letters, financial aid award notifications, and campus visit notes. Write down pros and cons of each school using these criteria.

Make your final decision by May 1, and then notify the colleges you’re rejecting so they can offer your spot and financial aid to another student.

Juniors…Campus visits will help you find the right fit!

Going on campus visits this spring will help you narrow your college choices. So, why should you do this while you’re a still a junior?

When you take the ACT this spring, you’ll be asked to list colleges that should receive the results. You’ll also be better prepared to apply for college admission and financial aid early in the fall.
