Submit an application that’s accurate and complete.  Follow the instructions and answer every question.  Use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation.  Have someone else look over your application before you submit it. Be aware of deadlines. All applications require a high school transcript, and most have sections for your counselor to complete. Give your counselor plenty of time to prepare transcripts, complete forms, and write recommendations. Make copies of all applications. Before you submit an application, make a copy and note the date it was submitted. You should receive confirmation from the college that they’ve received your application. If you don’t receive confirmation, contact the college to make sure they have everything they need.
