College Planning Timeline

College planning involves a series of steps across multiple years.

Students apply to college during Senior year, but college planning involves a progression of steps over several years.

Financial planning for college should start as early as possible, but otherwise college planning typically begins in 8th grade when students plan high school courses.

The timeline below will help you understand the best time to focus on each step of the college planning process.
