When earning college credits in high school, it's important that students choose credits with a purpose. Beyond one or two classes, the added value of college credit is determined by a student's future career and academic goals. The credits only add up when they fit within individual career and education plans. For this reason, it's important that students:
Actively research which careers are of the most interest to them and the required degree or certificate needed from a college or university to enter a career field.
Seek out resources from high school counselors or career and college advisors; teachers counselors, and advisors have materials to help with planning.
Research the colleges they are interested in attending and ask the college for guidance.
