- Make sure that all your colleges received everything needed for a complete application
- After you’ve applied, colleges will give you a username and password to their student portal to check the status of your application and financial aid
- Under the admissions tab, check to see that they have received all necessary documents. Any documents that have not been received will be highlighted, so make sure you send them right away.
- Familiarize yourself with the financial aid section. This is where they will post your financial aid award and let you know of any missing or required financial documents.
