Explore colleges and careers

You have a lot of choices as you plan how to reach your education and career goals!

Explore colleges

The College Navigator allows you to search colleges by size, degrees offered, location and more. As you click through the tabs, keep these important considerations in mind: financial aid (what percentage of students receive aid?), net price (what is the average price students actually paid to attend?), graduation rates (how many students graduate on time?), retention rates (how many students come back after one year at the college?) and programs/majors (do they have a program that matches your interests?). You can also explore colleges and other college planning resources with the College Board’s Big Future website.

Search Indiana college admissions information from our College GO! Week campaign. You'll find Indiana college application deadlines, links to apply online and more.

Explore careers

What does a graphic designer do all day long? How about a nurse, farmer or veterinarian? Search careers with the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ A-Z List of Careers, or search by school subjects you like.

Check out the Hoosier Hot 50 Jobs for a list of fast-growing, high-paying careers in Indiana today, and information about the education you'll need to join the field. Find videos from professionals, salary information and more.

If you're in grades 6-8, use the Drive of Your Life interactive game to explore careers. Test drive careers that match your interests in a custom-built car.

If you’re in high school, you may want to dig deeper with the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook. This online resource lets you search by career (like graphic designer) or by occupational field (like farming) to see up-to-date career profiles. Learn about the training and education needed, earnings, current job prospects, what workers do on the job and work conditions.
