These Resources Will Help You Learn and Plan
National College Transition Network
This website will help you with career planning, college selection and the application process. We will also suggest ways to find money to pay for college, and direct you to resources to help you prepare for college-level work.
The site is divided into five individual topics. Click on one of the topics for more information on that topic. Each unit also includes worksheets for you to print and fill out. You don’t have to go through the units in any particular order, but it’s probably best if you start with Career Planning and then make your way through Applying to College, Financial Planning, and Academic Skills, finishing up with Resources.
