High School Seniors: Three Things To Do Now!!

First, get your admissions applications in now! Nothing else – financial aid offers, housing deposits, invitations to Accepted Student Days, Orientation Days, etc. – can happen until you are accepted.


Second, get your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) filed as soon as possible after it becomes available on October 1! Nothing can happen on your financial aid – merit or financial need-based - until you have been offered admission, but if your FAFSA already has been filed, the college is in a position to offer you a financial aid award. The sooner the better, right?!


3rd, Now also is the time to look at LOCAL scholarship opportunities! Go to your high school guidance office or the main office. Get a copy of the Awards Night program from this past spring and see who gave scholarships to last year’s seniors who are entering college this fall. Look for those that might fit you, then express an interest in, apply for, write an easy for, etc. It amazes us all the time how many seniors just never get around to pursuing these local scholarships for which there is MUCH less competition than on the national free scholarship websites. Check your colleges of interest.  

Good luck and let us know if we can help in some way!
