Preparing Your Child for College

Preparing your Kid for CollegeEven if your child is a few years away from applying to colleges, it is time to start preparing for the big transition. There are a variety of considerations and planning measures that must be completed in order to ensure a smooth transition into this phase of their lives. Gathered are some helpful tips for preparing your child for college:

  • The first step to decide what type of education your child wants. While they may want to go to a four-year college or university straight from high school, academic and financial influences may make transferring from a community college after a couple years the optimal decision.
  • If your child is unlike most children their age and knows exactly which career path or major they want to go for, now is the time to start picking their courses accordingly. You will want to look into various colleges that offer their particular field of interest.
  • Once you have determined the grades needed to go to their preferred colleges, it is time to push your child academically. Proper college preparation includes studying for and taking all required standardized tests in advance. This will allow your child time to improve their score. Likewise, your child may benefit from taking some college level courses at a local community college.
  • Plan everything out and create a list of your child’s short term goals and long term goals in regards to going to and getting into college.
  • When it gets closer to application time, it is important that you make a calendar with all important dates. If your child will be applying to multiple colleges, they may become confused by all the different deadlines and miss an important opportunity!
