Sophomores preparing for college should plan to start learning about ways to pay for college.

It's the most important step in your journey to your first day of classes.

  • Consider taking a practice test to prepare for the PSAT or the Pre-ACT. 
  • Attend college and career events and fairs. 
  • Make time to visit colleges near you. Bring the campus tour checklist.
  • Start learning about federal and New York State grants and scholarships. 
  • Consider the types of careers that fit your interests and what college majors they require. 
  • Reach out to school counselors and/or mentors to discuss occupational interests and college requirements.
