Checklist for College Applications, etc.
  • College admission decision letters will begin to arrive this month. You should review your acceptances, and compare the colleges’ financial aid offers.
  • Visit or virtually visit the colleges where you have been accepted.
  • Call the college financial aid office with any questions you may have.
  • Stay focused on grades. Don’t slack off.  College admission officers expect to see that you’ve worked hard to keep your grades up.  Many colleges check your senior grades.  All acceptances are conditional upon successful completion of senior year.
  • Let your counselor know when you receive a college admission decision.
  • There is still time to apply to colleges. Many schools have late deadlines or rolling admissions policies where there is no set deadline and applications may be submitted during the winter or spring.  You should still apply as early as possible.  You never know how competitive open seats will be.

The School Counseling Office will automatically send mid-year grades to all the colleges to which a student has applied.
