Hi, you know a lot of people have your questions. The truth is, it's never really too early to start looking into and researching colleges. I started when i was in my freshman year at high school. Write a list of the schools you want to go to: 1 dream school, 1 fallback school, and 3 schools you want to go to. Every year or maybe every semester, after your plans on your future change, or maybe your preference for college changes, make a new list and compare with your older ones. Pretty soon you will have a long list of colleges you are interested in. Narrow it down, and find the ones that are right for you (majors, city, student life, professors, etc).

You should start visiting college campuses by the summer before your senior year in high school. Get to know the campus and the feeling of it. It really helps to visit a college and any time from the second semester of junior year to near end of senior year is acceptable.

Good luck!

Generally your junior year of high school is a good time to start, although you can start earlier. For now, concentrate on getting information from different colleges, the majors they offer, etc so you can narrow down your list of colleges to visit.

There is no wrong age to start looking at colleges. I started when I was like 10 and my brother started at about 8. Just visit as many as you can on vacations, and factor in what type of climate you like and whether or not you want to go to a big school. Hope this helped. &hearts;Rebecca

You should start researching the summer before your junior year and decide where you want to go and visit, then make arrangements to go throughout yout junior year (id say go during the school year you get a much better feel for the campus when there are students there)

Around your Junior year. That's when most kids in my school start looking at colleges at least. I'm going to be a sophmore and I'm already looking at colleges. It's never too early.
