An Organized College Application Process

August 18, 2008 at 9:30 am Leave a comment

High school juniors and seniors have a little more to worry about than just homework and school
activities than other younger students – they have to prepare for college! It’s never too early to think
about the college application process, and it’s a good idea to have a plan and know what needs to be done. There are specific deadlines and due dates for applications, scholarships, and financial aid, so you’ll want to be on top of things:

  1. Buy a notebook, calendar, or planner specifically for deadlines related to applying to college and for scholarships. Having all the dates in front of you will help you manage your time and know when things must be submitted.
  2. Ensure that your students answer every question in each application and include all extra documents before submitting. Have another person review it for errors or overlooked items.
  3. Keep track of all paperwork and correspondence. Designate a binder or folder and make sure to file letters and other requests. Write the date on the items you receive to keep track of the most recent
    responses and requests, and staple related items together.

If you’re having trouble creating your own filing system for this somewhat long and important process, take a look at the Captio AppliCase on Organized A to You’ll find it a handy tool for documenting and tracking all of your application activities and requirements, and it’s packed with advice and helpful resources.
