College – Vocation, 2 Year, 4 Year
This page will house information in regards to going on to post-secondary education. That could be a vocational school (like NCK), that could be a community college (like Cloud County), or a 4-year university or college (like Wichita State or Kansas Weslyan).
College Visits (4 yr, 2 yr, technical)
If you would like to take a visit to a school, you will need to fill out a blue sheet in the office that you will be gone and a pink sheet in the counseling office so we can track where you’re going as well. If you are needing help setting up a visit, if you are having issues with getting to a school, please stop by the counseling office.
*Tip/Recommendation: Typically it is recommended that you take your visits in your junior year. This way you are able to further explore and be ready to apply in your senior year. You can still take visits though in your senior year. If you’re interested in a school, we’d highly recommend getting on their campus & bring a parent/guardian. If they are not able to go, stop by our office!

You’ve taken some college credit online or for dual credit, now what? You know you may transfer to a different school after high school, or eventually after going to a school for two years. Will that class that you took transfer? In short, maybe. If you are going in between a public institution in Kansas to another public institution, it is more likely that class may be guaranteed to transfer. You would need to refer to the transfer guides from the KBOR webiste:
