Admission Tips

 



  • Consider applying to several colleges - your preferred choice plus two or three more. This will improve your chances of getting accepted to at least one college.

  • Request application and financial aid forms as soon as possible. It doesn't hurt to have these forms sooner than later so that you know what will be required.

  • Visit campuses to see the buildings, classrooms, residences, library and sport facilities. Attend college fairs to talk to the representatives of that school. Make sure the college culture fits you.

  • Start preparing your applications package early. Completing application forms, writing personal essays, securing recommenders and obtaining transcripts is time consuming.

  • Be aware of academic requirements - the courses and grades you'll need in your junior and senior years to get accepted. Speak with your school's career counselor and contact the colleges you are interested in.

  • Grades. Grades. Grades. The tougher your courses and the better your grades, the more options you'll have for applying to colleges. Maintain your grades in your senior year.

  • Submit applications, supporting documents and application fees well before the deadline. Most schools will not evaluate an application until all documents and fees have been received.

  • Fill in all forms completely. Check for accuracy and clarity. Have someone else check your application for accuracy and clarity.

  • Organize your financial records, scholarship submissions and student loan applications.

  • Keep a record of all applications for each college, and copies of all relevant forms and documents.
