Preparing for college isn’t just for seniors. All high school students should be focusing on doing well in school - your cumulative GPA (from grades 9 - 12) are used on college applications and scholarships. Build good habits to stay on track academically. Get involved in extracurricular or community activities and find a supportive system of people that want you to succeed. Explore career options and what it costs to get there (https://collegecost.ed.gov/net-price). Start saving for college (https://www.collegechoicedirect.com/), and be on the lookout for financial aid opportunities. #whyapply #theyapplied #themoreyouknow #CollegeGo
Of the Hoosiers surveyed in 2021 by the Indiana Chamber, 60% believe ‘a college degree doesn’t mean as much as it used to.’ This outlook is inconsistent with the realities of the current job market. For example, in March 2021, of the 916,000 jobs added to the U.S. economy, less than 1% (7,000 jobs) required only a high school diploma (t.ly/3dyu). Remember, options for college include apprenticeships, certifications, military, 2-yr colleges, 4-yr colleges and universities. Our seniors understand the importance of earning training beyond a high school diploma. #CollegeGo #whyapply
