In just a few short weeks, you’ll finally be a high school graduate! You’ve worked hard and put in years of effort to make it here, so enjoy every last minute.
How is the college process coming along? You’re probably hearing a lot of chatter from your friends about their plans and where they’re going in the fall, and it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement. Before you make your own decision, keep these things in mind:
- Make your final college visits. And make them count! See the campus from every aspect – visit a class in session, check out a dorm room, and eat in the cafeteria. Can you picture yourself living and studying there?
- Compare the costs of attending each college. It’s time to look at each school’s tuition and how much financial aid they’re offering you. Though it may mean a tough decision, you need to be realistic about cost.
- Read all mail and emails from your colleges. They will be sending you additional information that may impact your decision. Make sure you take everything into consideration, and call the schools with questions you may have.
At Sullivan University, we understand that this is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make. We have years of experience when it comes to helping high school seniors navigate the college decision process, and we’re happy to share everything we’ve learned with you.
