Why is it important to know all options before you apply?
It is important to research all educational programs and opportunities prior to applying for a position or continuing your studies. College or university admissions policies vary from institution to institution, program to program and curriculum type within various educational institutions. Each college or university has its own unique standards for determining whether a student is qualified to enroll and attend. After you’ve selected a school, ask the institution what requirements you must meet to be admitted.
What do I need to apply?
The type of application form required will depend on your desired educational goals and the school’s admissions policies. Some general education institutions may request that you submit an application, high school transcripts, SAT (or ACT) scores and personal information. Some vocational schools may only require proof of high school graduation or GED certificate and a resume in order to secure admission.
How long do I have to submit my application?
The time you have to apply will vary by program, so check with each school for the length of their application deadlines. Admission decisions are made early in the admissions cycle and, therefore, prior to the application deadline. Once your completed materials are received by a college or university, it will take up to two weeks for your application to be evaluated. If your application materials are incomplete or incompletely submitted, you may not be considered for admission.
What do I need to do to apply?
The general application process at colleges and universities differs from the admissions process at vocational institutions. Most colleges and universities require you to submit an application form along with your high school transcripts, SAT (or ACT) scores and personal information. Some selective schools require you to submit letters of recommendation or a current resume. The length of time it takes to complete the application varies by school, but applying early in your senior year can maximize your chances for admission consideration. Make sure all applications are complete, submitted and received by the application deadline.
How do I continue my education post-high school?
There are many ways you can continue your education after high school. Consider getting a degree, pursuing certification in a trade or choosing to attend vocational training centers or community college. Whatever your future aspirations may be, an education is the key to fulfilling them.
What are the benefits of an industrial apprenticeship?
Industrial Apprenticeships are set up with industry for the purpose of training people for specific jobs in that industry. These courses have been shown to improve some aspects of life skills and employability; they also offer paid work at the same time.
What are the benefits of attending a trade school?
There are many ongoing programs available for students to learn a trade. These programs offer on-the-job training and teach practical skills needed in various occupations. Students can learn at their own pace, and receive certificates or licenses upon completing the program. Trade schools may offer some kind of financial aid.
It’s important to remember that the decision about which educational path to pursue is solely up to you. There are many options available for you to choose from, however, and it is important that you think about your future goals when deciding which path is best for you.
