Help has arrived for students and parents interested in college admissions requirements.
A new addition to the Long Beach Unified School District's website (lbusd.k12.ca.us) was posted recently. Clicking on "Getting Into College" will access several helpful articles, a list of University of California and California State University admission requirements, information about financial assistance and tips from successful parents, teachers and students who were the first members of their families to obtain college admission or degrees.
The new pages on the district website may be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year from any location worldwide. Although much of the information is already available in hard copy print form, this new addition can put it instantly in the hands of anyone who wants it, needs it or is interested in checking out the possibilities for higher education. Anyone who does not have a computer may go to the closest Long Beach Public Library to log on. Additional materials about college admission, scholarships, financial aid and tips for applying are available from school counselors, school libraries and the public library. Other helpful college information websites are also listed on the new web pages.
