How to best prepare for college

Posted by Adam

Preparing for college can seem like a difficult process but the earlier you begin planning for college the easier it will be to go to college. I first began thinking about college in 9th grade and met with my school counselor to discuss what classes to take in order to meet college admissions requirements. I also went to my school’s College and Career Center to learn more about different colleges. My advice would be to start preparing early!

Finish Strong Academically

Posted by Jade

Many students should note that finishing your academic years strong is key in getting to college. Those in the 10th and 11th grade especially should know that those years are the ones used for your cumulative GPA when applying to college. Seniors who are accepted to college must also be sure to finish strong so they can remain eligible for admission and scholarships. The last thing anybody wants is to be told they can no longer attend their university of choice because they took the wrong classes their senior year or got grades lower than a “C”. Nowadays there are so many students applying to college, it can be very competitive. Remember to always do what is required and then some if you want to stand out among the rest!

Prepare for CSU Admission Early

Posted by Shannon Banks

Many students don’t know they can start preparing for CSU admission as early as middle school. When the CSU looks at admission criteria, they’re looking to see that students met the a-g requirements. Students can start taking these courses as early as 7th grade.

In high school, meet with your counselor to discuss how you will meet the a-g requirements. You’ll also want to take the SAT and/or ACT multiple times because CSU campuses will only use your best scores when evaluating you for admission to their school.

In addition to the a-g requirements, each of the 23 CSU campuses may have supplemental criteria that you will need to meet if the campus is impacted, or the number of fully qualified applicants exceeds the number of available spaces. Be sure to contact each CSU you are interested in individually to ensure that you are meeting all of the requirements for their specific campus.

Overall, increasing your preparedness for a CSU will increase the probability of you being admitted. If you start getting ready for the admissions process early, it will be less stress on you when you’re anticipating admission decisions.
