THE BEST TIME TO BEGIN PLANNING

FOR COLLEGE IS NOW!

Most colleges use grades from a high school student’s junior year to make determinations

about admissions.

However, there are various eligibility requirements that must be met prior to college acceptance. Some of those

requirements are based on the classes taken, and the credits earned during high school or community college.

LEARN MORE, EARN MORE

Not only can college graduates earn more during their lifetime than high school graduates, they’ll also have

a better chance of earning it in a career they enjoy.
