College: Info & Application Process

STEP 1: Narrow Your Search

Ready to begin the college process??  It may be challenging, but it is worth it. Begin by checking out the Preparing for College video prepared by some of our own EJ students!


Know you want to attend college but have no idea where?! Don’t just choose the schools that your friends are applying to. Visit The College Board’s Big Future site and utilize their free search tool that will help match you with colleges that meet YOUR standards.


Go on College Visits!  How can you consider applying to a college if you haven’t seen it in person?! Keep in mind that when you call to schedule a tour, you may also be able to schedule a visit with a member of the department you are most interested in.  That would help to give you an even better picture of what life would be like if you went to that particular college.  Before you go on your visit, stop by the Guidance office and pick up a College Visit form so that your day away from school will be excused.


 STEP 2: Gather Your Materials and Apply

If you are applying to a college that uses the Common Application, check out COMMON APP Guidelines for easy to follow instructions.
