College Planning

Although college planning can be a stressful process, it can also be an exciting one.  It is a big step toward your future success.


College planning can be summarized by three operative words: Organize, Research, and Verify. 


  • Organize both your application work and your college exploration process.  Approach your college search systematically by setting a schedule for planning and managing your time accordingly.
  • Research a number of schools by using a variety of resources: the Internet, school literature, your high school career center, and people who know the process.  Make sure that you involve your parents with each step of the process.  
  • Verify your college choices by comparing them on the Internet and by visiting the campuses.


College Grazing provides a number of planning tools that will help (see the sub-menu under “College Planning”).
