College Application Process

FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)

Bottom Line:

  • Take control of the application process by organizing it in your own way. Do not let it control you!

  • Complete your application using a black pen or typewriter. Do not use blue pen.

  • When asking individuals to write recommendations, put your request in writing with the date it needs to be returned.

  • Ask individuals writing recommendations well in advance of the deadline. If you want them to write a "quality" recommendation, avoid asking them the night before.

  • Your counselor will assist you with any part of this process. You are not in this alone.
