With fall in full swing, now is a great time for high school students to start the college admissions process. Navigating college admissions can be a little tricky, so we talked with some admissions professionals from our colleges about the process.

It’s great if high school students and their families start this process before senior year. This often leads to questions about what classes students should take in high school and what sets them up for success during the admissions process and beyond. Nicole Borwege from Augsburg University talked about this common question.

Senior year is often a time when students get serious about their college search. They may feel like they are behind if they haven’t figured out exactly what they want to study. Drew Deas from Concordia University, St. Paul talked to us about this concern.

The admissions process can be filled with unknowns — Beth Kleinschmidt from The College of St. Scholastica and Mai Chue Moua from Hamline University discussed some general advice to help students through the process.
