College Plan Timeline:
Refer to the Application Checklist if you get lost in the process.
Make sure colleges have everything they need from you including mid-year grade reports and all application materials.
Just when you think you’re done with applications, we bring you back in.
Unfortunately, your college applications aren’t a do-it-and-forget-it operation. As a responsible young adult you need to ensure that your application has a beginning, middle, and end. The end doesn’t come until you’re accepted to one of the schools on your college wish list.
To facilitate this happy ending, it’s time to sweat the details. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation where a silly mistake or omission compromises your chances of attending your dream school.
- Request that your high school send your first semester grades to every college that you applied to. Remember, schools will continue to track your grades as you finish out your senior year, so now’s no time to slack.
- Verify with your counselor that your transcripts, letters of recommendation, and test scores have been sent to your prospective schools.
- Send an email or make a phone call to make sure your colleges have received your application. While you’re at it, check to see that they have everything else they need, including your transcripts and financial aid material.
