Here’s the most important stuff you need to know
Top seven tips for juniors
- Make a list of your “must haves” for a college—think major, size, etc. Then, use websites like Cappex to find schools that have what you want.
- Develop your short list. Visit college websites, collect materials at college fairs, and check out social media.
- Join the mailing list for any school that interests you. It’s a great way to keep up with deadlines and campus news.
- Take a virtual tour. Visit any time you want—day or night.
- Take the SAT and/or ACT (if applicable*).
- Know the cost. Start researching costs and learn how to apply for financial aid (the FAFSA is available October 1 of your senior year).
*Admission to IU is now test-optional. To find out if this is the right path for you, learn more about our test-optional admissions policy.
The most important part of my campus visits was hearing the perspective of current students. Having a student presenter during my information session and seeing students interact around campus were great ways to help me picture myself at the school.Jeric Tumang, IU student
