Junior and Senior year is filled with not only tough classes, but also the monumental task of finding what college to attend. From going on private tours to discovery days, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and forget about getting important information. Here is a checklist of things you should already know about a college before deciding to visit. Then, there is also questions you should ask at every college you go to.

What should you already know or research before going on a college trip:

1. What is the tuition and room/board?

2. How many people go to the school?

3. Where is the school?

4. What division sports teams do they have?

5. Do they have the program(s) you want or are interested in?

6. Are they religiously affiliated?

If the school has met these basic questions and still seems like a good fit, then a visit might be a good option. On a visit these are the top questions to ask:

1. How spread apart is the campus?

2. Are first year students required to board?

3. Can first year students bring a car?

4. What is the average GPA and SAT/ACT score for someone who is accepted?

5. Do I need the ACT or the SAT with the essay?

6. What does the application process look like?

7. When do applications open and how soon would I get a result back?

8. Do you offer merit/athletic/club scholarships?

9. What grades are you looking for in a merit scholarship winner?

10. Should I get an associates, bachelors, masters, or doctorates degree?

11. I am interested in “x”. What majors do you have that go along with this?

12. I know I want to do “x” as my job. What major should I take?

13. How competitive is “x” major to get into?

14. How many seats does this “x” major have?

15. (For any medical related majors) Does “x” profession have a direct entry or accelerated course?

16. What is the success or passing rate of “x” major?
