Ask and You Shall Receive...

I recently went to New York, where I visited a taping of Live with Regis and Kelly. During the commercial break, Regis approached the audience and asked if anyone had questions. Without warning my brain, my mouth shouted "I do!” I had nothing in mind, but didn’t want to let the moment pass. Regis turned to me; I asked “Regis, may I shake your hand?” As Regis and I proceeded to share a hilarious moment of hand shaking, I heard an audience member tell her friend “I wish I would have asked that.”

Nearly each time I present at college fairs and high schools across California, students and parents often have the same response to the information provided- “I wish I would have asked or knew that information earlier.” The information is often out there- students just have to know where to look.

Here are three great places to start:

1. – For specific application information for CSU, Chico, carefully review our admissions requirements by applicant type: Chico Admissions Page

2. – CSUMentor is the application website for all of the California State Universities. If you’re interested in applying to CSU, Chico, you may also be interested in many of the other excellent California State University campuses. The Explore Campuses feature will be your greatest asset in finding schools by major, campus size, and location.

3. - By creating a College Search Profile, you will have the opportunity to input your grades, courses, test scores, and track your favorite colleges. I tested the CSU A-G high school course requirements against those recommended for Barnard College in New York and found a few differences. Check it out:
