Everything you need to prepare for that next step

How To Choose

Tour a college campus online without leaving the comfort of your home. eCampusTours.com is a college planning website featuring 360° x 360° virtual college tours of over a thousand college campuses.

CollegeView.com enables students to search for a college by majors, location, tuition, fees, and more – and will match the results based on search preferences.

CollegeWeekLive is a free virtual college fair that connects students with hundreds of colleges and universities from around the world. It offers students the same benefits as a traditional college fair – in a virtual setting. Students can see live streaming video presentations from admissions representatives, visit virtual booths to ask questions, and get more information.

U.S. News and World Report provides an annual ranking of colleges nationwide.

Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL) schools are a distinctive group of quality liberal arts colleges that are ideal for students seeking a top-notch higher education outside of the Ivy League.

Put together a list of 10 to 20 potential schools of interest. You can use College Board’s College Search MatchMaker tool to build your list of favorite schools. It provides several search criteria to narrow down the results. If you create an account, you can save your search criteria and save results to your own college list to reference at a later time.

Financial Aid | Student Loans | Scholarships

Studentaid.gov, a U.S. federal government site, gives families “financial aid 101” information, and helps them find available financial resources, like scholarships, grants, and loans.

Most colleges require the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to provide grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study opportunities.

American Education Services (AES) is one of the nation’s leading providers of student financial aid services and can help you understand the process before, during, and after college.

AES also offers great resources to help think about, choose, and pay for college at EducationPlanner.org.

FastWeb.com offers thousands of scholarship opportunities, arranged by category, such as by College or Major, for High School Juniors or High School Seniors, and more.

Test Prep / Study Resources

Most families know to register students for the ACT at ACT, Inc., but fewer know that it also offers lots of great free ACT studying resources, including study tips, sample questions — even complete tests.

College Board offers similar study resources for the SAT reasoning and subject tests, and for Advanced Placement tests, too.

TestPrepReview.com – Your source for free online practice tests.

Find Your Major / Career

MyMajors.com features an online college major quiz to help students pick a major based on their interests.

Career choice may be central to the college search itself. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program helps students get a sense of possible career choices that suit their personalities, interests, and abilities.

Application Process

Collegeboard.org has the answers to many of the questions running through your mind about applying to college. Their website provides tons of resources such as application timelines, checklists, FAQs, and even how to begin.

CommonApplication.org is used by nearly 700 colleges nationwide; this saves the student time, since one application can be used for multiple colleges.
