Pre-Application Activities:  Understanding the College Search

By now, they should also have an idea of the training and/or education involved in pursuing that career.

This section contains resources for helping students

  • discover options for postsecondary training
  • explore college search websites
  • find out more about schools by visiting and attending college fairs
  • organize all of the data they collect from these activities
