5 Essential Application Tips to Get Started
Learn about the different application policies and track the application and financial aid deadlines and fees.
Find out the school’s procedure for sending transcripts and what is needed for the counselor recommendation letter.
Don’t leave it too late!
Know your standardized tests scores and the scores you need for your target colleges.
Most colleges ask for 1-2 teacher recommendations, but you can send as many as you like.
If you apply electronically, make sure to print out every page of your application. If you submit a paper application, make photocopies. Ensure you also purchase certified mail or delivery confirmation if sending by mail and keep all postal receipts stapled to your application copes for proof of submission by the deadline. Follow up by calling admissions several days after submitting to confirm they have received all of your materials.
