We met some great CHS Seniors during On the Spot Admissions for Bunker Hill Community College yesterday. With so much happening in your life right now, what should you be doing to stay on track with your plans for college?
This spring, you should:
- Visit colleges that have invited you to enroll.
- Review your college acceptances and compare the colleges’ financial aid packages.
- Contact a school’s financial aid office if you have questions about the aid that school has offered you. In fact, getting to know your financial aid staff early is a good idea no matter what—they can tell you about deadlines, other aid for which you might wish to apply, and important paperwork you might need to submit.
- When you decide which school you want to attend, notify that school of your commitment and submit any required financial deposit. Many schools require this notification and deposit by May 1.
