College Planning - Sophomores

College Planning - Sophomores


  • Be involved. If you are not yet involved in something you enjoy, join a club or another activity.
  • Attend College Rep Visits in the Upper Quad at lunch.
  • Consider taking Advanced Placement classes next year.
  • Make sure you understand college A-G requirements. Meet with your counselor if you have questions.


  • Be diligent in choosing your summer plans.  Working, volunteering, or taking a summer course at a local college are all wonderful options. View the Advance Education options for high school students available at Folsom Lake College. 
  • Start researching colleges that you might be interested in.  The BigFuture tool on the CollegeBoard website is very helpful.
  • Find out whether the college you are interested in offers college nights or financial aid nights that you can attend. 
  • Attend Career Expo at UMHS in the Spring. More information will be sent out at the start of the Spring semester. 

All Year

  • Remember to keep a file of all honors, awards, activities, and volunteer service - even a scrawled post-it note in a folder or envelope will help you later in building a resume or filling out an application
  • Keep your grades up!
