We're here to provide all the information you need as you self-navigate through the college planning process!
Do you know what you want to study in college? If you don't, that's okay! Most students don't. Feel free to browse this Career Exploration Tool to learn about career options and occupational outlook including expected job growth and salary information.
Still can't decide? Many students benefit from starting with a short Skill Matcher assessment to help them narrow down career options that may be a good fit for them. Having an idea of which career paths you want to pursue can help you decide which programs (pathways) to focus on in high school.

It's time to know your options! Many 9th graders think they'll have plenty of time later in high school to plan for college. While you do have time, it will fly by in the blink of an eye. Taking the classes needed early on and participating in extracurricular activities since Freshman year will look good on college applications.
One year of high school completed! Way to go! Take a look at our suggested timeline for high school Sophomores. Remember, it's just a suggestion. You can always go back or move ahead - the important thing is that you get a grasp of what other students who have been in your shoes recommend you should know.
