Some questions to keep in mind when looking at colleges:
- Does the college or university offer your intended major or field of interest?
- How far is too far away?
- Are you going to live at home, campus, or off-campus?
- Does the college have a large campus atmosphere or does it offer a small campus atmosphere that focuses on individualized attention?
- What are the college’s admissions requirements? What are the college’s deadlines?
- Tuition? In-state or out-of-state? If out-of-state, will your KEES money transfer?
- Do you qualify for any of the scholarships offered by the college?
BE MINDFUL OF DEADLINES

The form must be completed including signatures of the student's parent or guardian and teacher and turned in one week prior to the visit. The student must also bring proof from the college representative that he or she visited the college.
