Planning to Attend School

Going to a college, university, or vocational institute can be part of a process that moves you toward meaningful employment and social interaction. Applying for and getting accepted into school can take weeks or months, so you will need to be patient.

You will need to:
• Decide which school(s) offers the courses or degree that you want
• Take standardized tests required for admission
• Apply for admission
• Apply for financial aid
• Select and register for classes

If you are unsure about how going to school will affect your health, you may want to choose a course schedule that makes it easy to maintain your drug regimen and start by taking one course or going part time.
