The College Roadmap

Seniors: What to do in September

1) Meet with your high-school counselor to review your plans for college. Do you want to go to a traditional 4-year university? Community college? Vocational school? Do you want to attend a competitive university? You should evaluate your plans based on your test scores and junior year grades.

2) Sign up for the October ACT or the October/November SAT I and/or SAT II.

3) Start writing to colleges on your list and request applications and information on admissions, financial aid, and housing.

4) Check with your high-school to make sure that your transcripts and other official records are up-to-date.

5) Ask your teachers, employers, and coaches to write you letters of recommendation. You'll need these in the admissions process.

6) Get a copy of the CSS Profile Registration Guide from your high-school guidance office. Find out if any of the colleges on your list require this financial aid application.
