The application process for almost every college and university now takes place through the each school’s prospective website. The key to the application process is organization. Most schools charge an application fee (this may be waived by a school if the student qualified for an SAT or ACT fee waiver) and then most, if not all, of the following documentation:

  • A completed application
  • Transcripts
  • ACT or SAT test scores
  • Counselor Recommendation
  • Other letters of recommendation
  • Essays
  • A completed FAFSA

A checklist can be very helpful in tracking the submission of documents to each school.
