We encourage you to plan ahead
Give PSEO or Early College a try so you can bring credit into college.
Aim high with your coursework and testing; it pays $$$ back to you (AP, CLEP, ACT & SAT).
Be practical about what you can afford and then, make goals to finish accordingly.
Be open to doing full load semesters (18 credits) and summer courses.
