Scholarships

Seniors:  Be sure to check with the institution in which you plan to attend for any scholarships they may provide.  The sooner you decide where to attend the more savings you can enjoy.  So visit colleges and make your selections early.

 

Sophomores/Juniors:  Start visiting colleges now, don't wait until your senior year!  It's easier to make a decision when you're not stressed.  Schedule visits during breaks and narrow your selection down so that during your senior year you can make a better informed, confident decision.
