9 College Websites You Can't Live Without

College websites? There are endless college tools on the web, enough to make one dizzy!  Check out our "9 COLLEGE WEBSITES YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT" below.   You'll find more information on these sites in our college pages above.  Every college-bound student will be using these on a regular basis, from planning for college to applying for college. 

Your "step 1" is to make a user name and password for each site.   We recommend you use the same user name and password for each site.  Another college-smart move would be to create a new, dedicated e-mail account (pick a professional-sounding user name) that you use just to manage all your college accounts and correspondences.
