• Planning for college begins your freshman year and continues throughout high school. Meet with your counselor early on and continue to check-in each semester. Search colleges and careers on AzCIS, speak with family and older siblings, and research colleges on College Board or universities' websites.

    Click here for College Board's College Planning page  - there are great resources here for every grade level.

    Out-of-state universities have different admission requirements and processes for applicants. Check specific sites for schools and begin researching your options early. College Board is a great place to begin.

    Many universities have virtual tours on their websites, so if you cannot afford to travel to an out-of-state school, check the website or try this website Campus Tours.com.
