College Application Tips

Signing a Contract

Know your Deadlines

Start your applications early enough to complete them by the deadlines. Deadlines are usually between January 1 and February 15, although they may be earlier if you are applying early admission.


Read the Instructions

Most of the mistakes on college applications are the result of not following the instructions. Don't let this happen.


Provide all Information

Leaving blank fields or providing incomplete responses makes it look like you weren't paying attention. Take care to be thorough.

Smiling Man on Laptop


Use teachers, counselors, and others who know you well, both inside and outside the classroom. Give them enough time to write thoughtful and considerate recommendations, and be sure to thank them.


Represents who you are

The essay is the only opportunity you have to explain why you are different from other applicants. Be original and make it personal.

Writing Documents

High School Transcripts

Notify your counselor's office of your application deadlines so your transcripts don't arrive late.

You are done!
