Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
This guidebook is designed to help Virginia high school students plan for college. It suggests ways for students to prepare for college, classes they should take in high school to make sure they will be accepted into college, and ways to get scholarships and other kinds of financial aid. The booklet outlines the courses required for graduation from Virginia high schools and explains the courses and course sequences that will meet most college admissions requirements. A suggested college preparatory curriculum is presented for grades 8 through 12, and the minimum admissions requirements of some Virginia public and private colleges are listed in terms of credits in each discipline. The booklet also describes some advanced studies programs, including dual-credit programs, "Tech Prep" programs, and the International Baccalaureate program. College transfer is discussed with a chart showing the degrees offered by Virginia's community colleges. Another section of the booklet discusses selecting a college and presents a timetable for college bound students. Paying for college and various types of financial aid are discussed, and costs are estimated for a number of Virginia colleges and universities. (SLD)
