Getting Ready for College

A large part of being successful in college is knowing how it differs from high school (pdf). But while higher education is different, students can start preparing now in a variety of ways — by getting a handle on the ACT test, taking high school summer school courses or earning college credit.

Parents also need to be prepared for how their role changes once their student is in college. Some of this is due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
