Frequently Asked Questions
What is College Prep Pass?
College Prep Pass gives you access to prep classes, videos, practice questions, and application information. It's designed for busy students to help them (and their families) navigate the entire journey to college. Getting into your dream school likely means prepping for multiple tests, like the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and AP exams. You'll also have to create stand-out applications with excellent admissions essays. College Prep Pass can help with each step by giving you access to prep resources for all 4 tests as well as help with admissions essays, deadlines, and choosing the right school. By the time you submit, you'll be completely ready for college.
How does College Prep Pass work?
Once you enroll, you will be charged for the first month’s subscription fee and you can start using your resources instantly. You will see a recurring charge on your credit card every 31 days until you cancel the subscription. We'll send you an email reminder 5 days before so you don't forget—and you can cancel anytime. Use all the resources you want—attend live lessons, watch videos on demand, or get admissions help. We recommend you make a study schedule (your coach can help if you choose that upgrade option).
How do you get ready for college?
By taking challenging courses and working to get good grades, you've already done a lot to prepare yourself for college. In fact, 2 of the most important factors are your GPA and the strength of your curriculum. We can help you succeed in your AP or IB classes to boost your GPA. It's also important to prepare for the SAT or ACT to get a competitive score and to showcase yourself in your college applications. Don't forget extracurriculars count too, and schools want to see quality over quantity. Look for internships, summer jobs, and club leadership opportunities that will not only help you stand out but will also prepare you for college and beyond.
What can I do now to prepare for college?
If you're a 9th or 10th grader, start by taking a practice PSAT (your school might offer this as well) and by focusing on getting good grades in your core classes. Check to see which AP, IB, or dual-credit classes are available to you. You might not be able to take these right away, but you should be looking ahead and making sure you're ready for them. If you're in 11th grade, start with the PSAT/NMSQT®. In addition to preparing you for the SAT and ACT, the PSAT can qualify you for scholarships like National Merit. You should plan to take the SAT or ACT (or both) at least once before you apply to college. In 12th grade, you'll submit all of your applications, including your SAT or ACT scores, your admissions essays, and your high school transcript.
When should you start preparing for college?
Right now. No matter where you are in the process you can always begin by taking a practice test to see where you stand. Your application may focus on grades and test scores, but other things play a part too, such as extracurriculars and letters of recommendation. Start researching colleges and visiting if you can (or taking a virtual tour). Demonstrated interest can help you get in, so make sure your dream school knows you want to go there. Begin working on your applications early, especially your admissions essays, which are a chance to tell your story.
