- Get your applications out early. Different schools have different deadlines. Make sure you know what they are.
- The ACT or SAT is required by most schools. Register online at www.collegeboard.org for the SAT and www.actstudent.org for the ACT. The Alden High School code is 330-105. Practice test booklets are available in the Guidance Office. Fee waivers are available for students on free or reduced lunch; see your counselor.
- Apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov as soon after October 1st as you can. This is the major form that is used by all colleges to start the financial aid process. The sooner you and your parents complete it, the better.
- Be sure to make an appointment with the Admissions Office to visit the colleges you are considering. This could include an interview with the department that you are applying to and the Financial Aid Office. The worst thing to do is enroll at a college that you have never visited.
- Apply to more than one college!! Don’t just apply to the college that you really want to go to. Give yourself options. You can always transfer to the school of your choice from a two-year school. Be sure to apply to at least one school that you know you will be accepted at and you can afford.
- FINALLY, START NOW!! It is not too early to apply to a school. There are a great many decisions to be made before you send out an application. You want to be sure that you are applying to schools that meet all of your needs. The only way to do this is by researching the school’s background, reading through their catalog and visiting the school’s admissions office.
