This leaflet contains a checklist of actions students should take to prepare for college. The checklist begins with the pre high school years, by advising selection of challenging courses and outlining ways to save for college. Ninth graders are again advised to select challenging courses and to begin to think about possible careers. It is suggested that 10th graders take challenging classes in core curriculum areas and begin to refine their possible career choices. Tenth graders should begin to think about the colleges they might choose and should take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Advice for 11th graders become more specific, and includes recommendations for taking college entrance examinations and more specific advice about choosing a college. Advice for 12th graders includes details about student financial aid. Some useful Web sites are listed, and telephone numbers are given for general information about financial aid. (SLD)
