What's picture

Below is some useful information.

Each university has different requirements. I suggest you go to your universities website and click on "undergraduate admissions," "prospective students," or a similar link. This will give you all of the information you need to apply to the university. Important things to know are; high school course requirements, minimum gpa, as well as ACT and/or SAT requirement score(s).

Many colleges require a letter of recommendation stating that you have the potential to be and are a good student. Getting a letter of recommendation is very easy. The vast majority of high school teachers and faculty are more than willing to spend the 5 minutes it takes to write a recommendation for you.

It is also important to note that many universities have two different sets of requirements. The requirements to get into the university may be different than the requirements to get into the program of your choice. It is possible to get into a university and not the program you are wanting. That is not to say that after a year or two of general eds that you cannot reapply to the program, but you will want to do your research here.

As far as choosing a major goes, if you do not have one in mind, many universities give you the option of choosing "undeclared." What this does is allow you to get all of your general education and core curriculum requirements finished while you decide what you want to major in. I believe it is something like 60% of college students change there majors at least twice during their college career, so do not be too surprised if you change your mind later on.

On a side note, it is very important to contact the admissions office via phone or e-mail. This is where you will find the most help for your specific school. Personally, I received a small scholarship from the Radio/Television (my major) department at SIU after keeping in touch with my adviser. So yes, it can pay to ask questions.
