Junior Checklist uCanGo2.orga Fall Checklist Keep talking. Continue your conversations with your guidance counselor, teachers, family members or other trusted adults about your plans after high school. Talk with family and friends about their educational choices. Get smart. Enroll in AP and other honors-level classes, if possible. Enroll now. Sign up for college credit courses while in high school. Discuss concurrent enrollment with your counselor. See for yourself. Attend a college fair event in your area. These events offer families a chance to talk with schools and financial aid providers. Visit UCanGo2.org to find the College Fair Worksheet with great questions to help you at the fair. Add it to your calendar. Visit UCanGo2.org/Students to find dates for the ACT, SAT, PSAT and AP (Advanced Placement) or other honors-level exams being offered. These exams are important college preparation steps. Do a thorough review. Ask for a preview of your academic record and profile and evaluate yourself. Look for gaps or weaknesses, and seek advice from your counselor about ways to improve your profile. Decide on an exam. ACT or SAT? Contact the school you plan to attend and ask which test they prefer. Once you decide which exam to take, sign up and prepare for it by using the Test Prep section found at OKcollegestart.org. Get in. Investigate admission requirements for your chosen school(s). Pssst...remember the PSAT. Register and take the PSAT exam offered in October. This score is required for several national scholarships, including the National Merit Scholarship. Pare it down. Narrow your list of schools based on research you've already completed. Your list will probably include three to five schools. Get aid. Financial aid, that is. Start researching your grant, scholarship and student loan options by checking out the Are You Looking for Money booklet in the Resources section at UCanGo2.org. Talk taxes. Find tax tips for you and your parent(s) on the Hope Scholarship Tax Credit and Lifetime Learning Tax CreditatlRS.gov. Visit UCanGo2.org for tools to help you plan, prepare and pay for college!
