HS College Planning Tip: for Week of March 29


Quick Review

April begins the week. Review this checklist for items that should be completed at this time in your college planning process.

Getting Your Acceptance Letter

Check your mailbox for acceptance letters from colleges.
If a college you are considering hasn’t responded, contact the Admissions Office to follow-up:

  • Compare your letters
    compare your acceptance letter, financial aid offers, and other criteria to narrow your selection down to 1-2 schools.

    Upon your selection of school(s), you will be required to send in a non-refundable deposit to secure your position in the Freshmen class. So make sure it’s the right decision.

Most schools have a May 1 Acceptance Deadline
Deposit money will likely be required to reserve your admission. Keep on track to meet these deadlines.

You must complete and submit
your Free Application For Student Aid (FAFSA) before receiving the Student Aid Report (SAR).
