For the fourth consecutive year the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) has created the statewide StepUP to Higher Education College Guide. The guide contains information on ways to plan and prepare for college, including a grade-by-grade checklist, recommended high school courses, and ways to pay for college.
Additionally, each of Utah’s public colleges and universities, as well as private not-for-profit institutions, is highlighted, and a Facts at a Glance section allows for a quick comparison between the institutions’ enrollment numbers, degree offerings, and tuition prices, among other important information.
The College Guide is distributed to each high school senior through Utah Council’s Post High School tour, which visits nearly every high school in the state between September and November. All counselors who attend USHE’s Conference for School Counselors and Administrators will also receive a copy.
Last year 80,000 guides were distributed to Utah students and families directly through their schools or through various outreach and access programs.
