When thinking about what size college you’d like to attend, remember that larger colleges have more majors, more courses, and more activities to choose from. Smaller colleges are more personal, the classes usually have fewer students, and they’re easier to get around. Majors All colleges have a variety of majors and programs. While most colleges have popular majors such as business, no college is able to offer every major. If there’s a specific subject you want to study, you need to look for colleges that offer that major. For example, if you want to study marine biol- ogy, you need to look for colleges that have a major in marine biology. Admissions requirements Colleges have their own admission requirements. Some colleges ac- cept all high school graduates. Other colleges are more selective, and much harder to get into. Look for colleges that accept students with academic records similar to yours. Special programs Perhaps you want a college that has a girl’s volleyball team, an orches- tra, or a study abroad program. If you want a college with a specific program, activity, or sport, this can help you narrow the list of colleges you want to consider. Costs College costs vary and college can be expensive, but there’s a great deal of financial aid available. The main college expense is tuition. This is the cost of instruction. Students must also pay for books and fees, and students who live in a dorm must pay for room and board (housing and meals). If cost is a concern, talk to your counselor about how you can make college affordable.
