|Federal Government's "College Score Card"|
College Scorecards in the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center make it easier for you to search for a college that is a good fit for you. You can use the College Scorecard to find out more about a college’s affordability and value so you can make more informed decisions about which college to attend. To start, enter the name of a college of interest to you or select factors that are important in your college search. You can find scorecards for colleges based on factors such as programs or majors offered, location, and enrollment size.
|The Common Application|
Many private 4-year colleges and universities accept the same "Common Application."
High school athletes who hope to compete intercollegiately at NCAA Divisions I or II schools must register through this system. Ideally, their registration will be completed during spring of a student's junior year of high school. If you want to play sports at an NCAA Division I or II school, start by registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center at eligibilitycenter.org during your sophomore year.
