12th Grade

It's here: Your final year of high school! It's sure to be filled with lots of plans, events, excitement and lasting memories. Make sure those plans include the steps you need to take to get to college.

Make a calendar

Organize college visits, application and credential deadlines in a single place, where you can easily see what's coming up.

Take a tour

Many colleges and universities have formal Open Houses in the fall. At these events, you can usually tour the campus, meet with admissions officials, learn about financial aid, and hear from current students.

Read all about it

Take one last look at the requirements you need to meet for the colleges that you plan to apply to.


Don't overlook what you need to do for this step. Make sure you're meeting all deadlines. Read your application carefully before you submit it.

Keep calm and carry on

Waiting to hear back from colleges can be nerve-wracking. Make sure you are taking the time to enjoy your senior year!
