Steps in Applying for College

 

Choose a college. Consider size, location, cost, admission requirements, a course of study, family tradition, physical facilities, extracurricular activities, honors programs, transfer of credits, etc. It is strongly recommended that you visit college campuses before finalizing your decision.

 

Meet admission requirements: a) grades; b) testing. These can be found on the colleges' websites.

 

Obtain applications:

a) admissions - Public colleges in Texas www.applytexas.org

Over 300 other colleges at www.commonapp.org

File applications:  If an essay is required, use correct spelling and punctuation. Make the best impression possible.

b) housing - Usually requires a deposit and at some universities, on-campus housing is limited. Be aware of any deadlines for housing applications.

c) financial aid - Financial aid forms must be accurate, and complete. www.fafsa.gov 

 

Meet all deadlines. It is a good idea to mark these on your calendar.

 

Keep a record of all correspondence with the college.

 

Sign and return the letter of financial offers.

 

Request a final transcript from your high school registrar. This final Academic Achievement Record will have a state seal.
