High school seniors: What are your plans for the future?


Will you be attending college or career or technical school? Have you applied and been accepted?


Once you decide where you will attend, most schools ask that you notify them by May 1 of your plans to enroll for the fall semester. Be sure to complete any requirements necessary to officially enroll by the school's deadline.


For the 2017-18 year, 133 Missouri high schools are planning Decision Day events to celebrate their seniors' plans for college or military service. Even if your school isn't participating, you can join the celebration by posting your plans on Facebook and Twitter using #MODecisionDay, #IDecided, or #Classof2018. Post a photo of yourself in your college shirt or holding this sign (print and write in the name of the school you will be attending).


If you haven't applied to college or been admitted, it's not too late. Get started today!


As you finalize plans for college, be sure to complete the FAFSA and learn more about student financial aid to help you pay for higher education.


Remember, smart financial decisions are an important part of planning for your future.
