Applying to college doesn’t have to be a stressful process, especially if you start early and space your tasks out throughout your junior and senior year. From start-to-finish there are materials to gather, tests to take, and different choices to make, so organization and preparation are the keys to navigating your college applications.

Following our college plan checklist is a great way to make sure you're staying on track throughout the process! Even though there are recommended timeframes to complete each task, it’s never too late (or too early) to start thinking about your life after high school. Be empowered to complete this checklist at your own pace in a way that works for you.
