College application deadlines are coming up. If you have not started applying to colleges, please stop by to see Mrs. Wood.
- Visit the colleges you are applying to whenever possible. You want to find the best fit for you.
- Decide how you are going to apply to each college. The college website, CFNC, Common Application, Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success.
- Make sure you know your deadlines. Stay organized. Keep all your college application, scholarship information and financial aid information in one place.
- Make sure you send your test scores directly to the colleges through SAT and ACT websites.
- Don't forget to submit each application fee.
- For community college students, make sure you sign up to take the placements tests. Community colleges may have application deadlines for specific departments. Make sure you submit your application in time.
- Letters of recommendations from teachers and the counselor must be requested in a timely manner. Ask them first if they are willing, then provide them with your high school resume, a stamped addressed envelope is nice to give and provide at least 5-10days for them to complete your letters.
- It's OK for teachers and others not to allow you to read the recommendations. Do not be offended by this, but choose your recommenders wisely.
Any senior who has been accepted to college, please submit a copy of your acceptance letter to Mrs. Wood.
