Ready to head back to college? Great! That is outstanding news! Here are your next steps:
Step 1: Decide to go to school.
Step 2: Choose a major. (Step one and step two can be interchangeable.) Research majors and/or programs at Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU).
Step 3: Choose a college that offers your program of choice.
Step 4: Apply to college. When applying to a college you will generally need to fill out the application, pay the application fee, turn in your high school transcripts, official college transcripts (if you are transferring in) and generally, the Accuplacer or SAT/ACT scores.
Step 5: Get your financing for school in order. You may need financial aid, you may use scholarship or you may pay out of your pocket. It does not matter how you plan to pay, you just want to make sure that you have a plan in place and are ready to implement your plan.
Step 6: You’re accepted! Jump for joy (or whatever it is that you do when you are excited).
Step 7: Meet with your advisor. Your advisor is a wealth of knowledge and can help make sure that you get on the path to success.
If you follow these steps you can be a successful student and eventually, a college graduate. Online advisors are here to help you get started and point you in the right direction.
