Grad : Military Information

Military Information

The military can offer a diverse and challenging set of experiences and skill development. Along with travel opportunities, it also helps pay for part of your education. 

To join the military, you need to be physically fit and have good grades. Skill in math, engineering, science, and foreign languages can help you advance.

Grad : Career & Transfer Planning

Colleges in Washington State have degrees and agreements to make transfer from a community or technical college to a four-year college or university easier for students.

Public community and technical colleges offer transfer associate degrees that transfer to all public four-year colleges and universities and many private colleges and universities.

These degrees allow students to meet all or most lower division general education requirements before they transfer. Depending on the degree, they may also meet some lower division requirements for their major.

Set : Managing Your Money

Common college costs include tuition, mandatory fees, room and board (food), books, transportation, and supplies. Meeting these financial obligations is a critical component to educational success. 

In the case of anticipated college costs, income and savings can make a big difference. Explore how income earned in today's jobs might be saved for tomorrow's educational expenses. And when there is money to be saved, consider savings accounts, federal savings bonds, stocks and mutual funds, college savings plans, and other saving options. 

Set : What You Need to Know

Now that you’re in college, you need to focus on paying for your education and completing your program, certificate, or degree.

Talk to your counselor frequently to make sure you are on track to graduate on time. Many schools have online programs to help you track your progress toward graduation. These can be very helpful but should not serve as a substitute for talking to your counselor.
