College Planning
College Planning
Selecting colleges and completing applications can be time-consuming and difficult tasks. Search the topics to the left for more information about how to start the college search and what to do once you've chosen some colleges for application.

Selecting a College
You know you want to go to college, but what next? Begin your college search by asking yourself some questions about what kind of college would be the best fit for you. Next, go online to find out more about colleges that might fit your expectations.

College Applications
Are you ready to complete your college applications? Most college websites allow you to apply online directly from their homepage. Applications for Minnesota colleges and some other local colleges are also available in the LSH Career Center.
College visits
Before making your final choice, it is important to make a college visit! The college visit can give you information about the school that is impossible to find on a website or in a college mailing.

Financial Aid
Seniors may apply for government financial aid beginning in January of their senior year. Scholarships may also help pay for college and each scholarship has a different deadline based on the organization which is giving funds.
