Use a calendar to keep track of college admissions deadlines

Monday, June 20, 2011
Let's be honest, applying to college will not be easy. In addition to homework and extracurricular commitments, you will need to make time for college planning. This process will require focus, discipline and good time management, skills that also will be useful in your college career.

Depending on the schools to which you are applying, there may be several deadlines involved in the application process.

Most schools set specific deadlines for receipt of SAT and ACT scores, early admissions applications, and financial aid applications. To stay organized, CollegeBoard recommends using a calendar.

The higher education research organization suggests that high school seniors make a note to schedule an appointment with their school counselor sometime in September to discuss important college information. In addition, individuals should use this time to finalize their list of college and university choices.

A good college calendar should also factor in activities that need to be accomplished during summer vacation. College Answer, a college information site sponsored by the loan processor and provider Sallie Mae, suggests that the three months between junior and senior year be spent visiting schools, deciding who you will ask to write your letters of recommendation and improving reading and vocabulary skills. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800534431-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
