Sign up to take the ACT or SAT again this fall. Consult your school counselor or the college adviser for more information.
By early fall, select schools to which you will apply. Most colleges encourage students to apply online. Check with Asheboro High School Student Services Department often for scholarship information. Update your list of honors and extracurricular activities for your activity sheet/resume.
In September-November, complete college applications. If you are required to submit written recommendations, solicit them from school counselors, teachers, and people in the community. The first deadline for many colleges for early admission is October and November. Many state-supported colleges request that applications be received during these months for early admission.
By December or January, most colleges will notify students of any missing materials for admission. Most colleges will send confirmation that all materials have been received.
Along with your parents, plan to attend a financial aid workshop. This workshop is usually held in October. Respond to college offers of admission and/or scholarship. Notify the college or school you are planning to attend as well as those to which you were accepted but will not attend.
Keep working hard to maintain your good academic standing! Upon receiving your final transcript, colleges can rescind admissions if your performance is not adequate at the end of the year.
