How to apply to college (in four easy steps)

If you could use a little guidance on the application process, check out the tips below.


Start early

Don’t put off beginning your search! Ask yourself a few questions: What am I looking for in a college? Should it be a public or private school? Does it have a program that I’m interested in studying? How much will it cost?

There are great resources for narrowing down your options. To start, try Niche, College Board and U.S. News & World Report.

Get to know LaGrange College:


Stay organized

Once you’ve narrowed down your search, get organized. Mark the various application deadlines on a calendar. Make a list of the school’s application requirements. If you need to submit SAT or ACT scores, register early for the test and send your scores to the schools you’re applying to. Start writing your application essay and leave yourself time to edit, revise and get feedback from trusted sources. Your essay represents the type of student you are, so you want to put your best foot forward. Be creative!

You’ve done the work, now submit your application. Don’t forgot that most colleges, including LaGrange, will want a copy of your high school transcript. Ask your guidance counselor to send one.

And remember that in addition to enrollment deadlines, many scholarships also have deadlines. The sooner you are able to submit your application, the better.

Follow up by tracking your application. Many schools maintain a private website that alerts you to your application’s status. Reach out to your admission counselor if you have any questions.
