The moment has arrived! By the fall of your senior year, you should stop shopping for a college and start applying to one. Many of the more selective colleges and universities have mid- to late-December deadlines for enrollment the following fall. Others may have deadlines late in the spring, or may even continue taking applications through the summer. So if you're ready to apply to the college you've chosen, these helpful guidelines will make the process easier, and prevent last-minute surprises.
- Apply early so you'll have time to review and compare scholarship and financial aid offers, and see if any schools require you to take summer preparatory courses.
- Read the application instructions carefully and be sure you provide all of the required information and materials-such as copies of high school transcripts or letters of reference.
- Respond to all requests for additional information immediately and keep records of your responses.
- Keep a file with a copy of your application and other materials, copies of letters from the colleges or universities, and copies of your letters to the schools.
