College‑Bound This Fall? Ten Things to Think About!

As you get ready to head off to college, take advantage of your school's New Student or Freshman Orientation. This short visit to your college campus (usually no more than one overnight) is a great chance for you to participate in some different educational, social, and practical activities ‑ all designed to teach you about your campus. In addition to attending Orientation, this list will help you start your college career off on the right foot!

The Center for College Planning provides New Hampshire high school seniors and their families with expert advice about the college planning process free of charge.

What's the Common App?

The Common Application is an online application accepted by nearly 700 colleges and universities. Students complete one form, and send it to all of their chosen participating colleges. Using this form is time‑saving and simplifies the application process. If you will be a senior this fall, you can begin your Common Application over the summer. Once you start the Common Application, you may realize you don't have all of the necessary information to complete a particular section, that is okay! Save the form and keep coming back to it to add information.
