It’s never too early to start planning for college. Though the application process is still a few years away, there are a few things you can start now to make things easier for you and your student later on in the process.
- Start a college resume’ by listing out academic, volunteer and community involvement. Download a free resumé template that you can use for this purpose.
- If you’ve not already started, open a savings account for college tuition and costs.
- Remind your student that every grade they earn in high school will affect their final GPA and influence college acceptance and scholarships.
