There are over 3,000 accredited colleges and universities in the United States.
Choosing one may be the most important decision you have made in your life up
to this point. The application process can make even the most laid back students
very nervous and self-conscious, but systematic planning and clear
communication with your parents and School Counselor will minimize your
anxiety and maximize your ability to choose the college that is the right fit for you.
This handbook is designed to reduce much of that anxiety by providing a
thorough overview of the college selection/admission process. Refer to it often
and follow the suggestions and procedures outlined in it. Both students and
parents can benefit from the information.
