Getting a Summer Job in College

If you haven't worked before, now is the time to suck it up and get a job. Let's face it: college is expensive! By getting a job over the summer - and saving the money you earn, of course - you'll be able to buy those school supplies and books once the fall semester begins. Even if your parents are paying for all of your college expenses or you're getting a federal grant, you will still need money to pay for food and other items, especially if you're living on campus. What if you run out of printer ink the night before a paper is due? You'll have to run down to the campus store and buy some. You obviously can't do this without some money in the bank. Another added bonus of having a job over the summer is it will take your mind off of the impending start of college. Many people find themselves stressed out at the change college brings to their lives. Having a job keeps you productive and focused rather than sitting at home worrying.

Financing Your Education - Getting Financial Aid for College

College is a major expense and you need to start saving now, if you haven't already. Two of the first people you should talk to about paying for college is your parents, and your school counselor.

Another financial aid option is work-study, where you will pay for your college tuition by working on campus. There are even tax credit programs for getting through college.

The Road to College - ACT & SAT Prep Classes and More

Signing up for a class that prepares you for those college entrance exams (SAT/ACT) is perhaps one of the best things you can do to get yourself into a decent college or university. The material on these tests should be familiar to you, but their presentation and formatting may be entirely new to you. Taking a class makes it so come test day, there are no surprises. If you will be taking the SAT, you'll need to also take the PSAT, which is just a practice test to prepare you for the one that counts. You can also take PSAT classes. Do what feels best for you but keep in mind that less work doesn't mean it's the right path. Do your best to prepare for the standardized tests you need to take now and you'll thank yourself later. Pay particular attention to your math class. Formulas and equations you learn now will most likely appear on these tests. While your primary focus should still be on your high school education, you can start planning ahead now. Sign up for http://www.fastweb.com. You'll have to answe...
