Choosing a College

What kind of degree will get you to your dream job: one-year certificate, two-year degree, four-year degree, or more?

If you already know what you want to major in, visit the degree finder to see what colleges offer degrees in that subject.

What type of college campus best suits you?

Do you want to go somewhere close to home or far away? Big city or small town? Small college or large university? Live in the dorms or off campus?

What fun opportunities are you interested in: study abroad, student government, intramural sports, or internships?

Visit a college campus. Contact the admissions office to set up a guided tour.

Who can you ask to get advice about college?

Ask your family and friends, neighbors, teachers, and school counselors what they liked about college, what they found challenging, and what advice they can give you.
