Each year College Board connects with millions of students, supporting their success and achievement through programs like the PSAT/NMSQT®SAT®, and Advanced Placement®, as well as tools and resources like BigFuture. You’ve probably already interacted with one of our programs, whether you took the PSAT/NMSQT, practiced for the SAT on Khan Academy®, or enrolled in an AP® course. With BigFuture, you’ll see how these programs and others from College Board can help you get to and succeed in college. We’re here to give all students the support they need to apply to and enroll in colleges that are their best academic, social, and financial fit.

As an organization with members from more than 6,000 colleges, universities, and other institutions, we know a lot about what colleges look for in the admission process. We created BigFuture with input from our members, including admission officers, college counselors, families, and students like you, to make sure we always give you the information and guidance you need to apply and get in to college. And, we update BigFuture all the time, so you’ll always access the most up-to-date college planning information for students and families.

Your voice is important to us and we’re always looking to make BigFuture better for students. If there’s something you’d like us to know, please contact us.
