2.All applications should be typed or printed in black ink.
3.Check to see if references/recommendations are needed.
4.If a processing fee is required, write a check. Do not use cash.
5.Make copies of all applications, essays and all important information for your files.
6. Take completed application, application fee, and any other necessary admission forms to your counselor. The counseling office will send complete package, along with an official transcript to the college admission's office for you.
7.IF YOU APPLY TO A SCHOOL ONLINE, BE SURE TO NOTIFY THE GUIDANCE OFFICE SO YOUR OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT CAN BE SENT TO THE SCHOOL.

What do the terms "Early Decision" and "Early Action" mean?
Early decision and early action allow you to both apply and learn the college's decision earlier than regular admission.
Early decision is binding. If accepted, you must attend that school and withdraw any applications sent to other schools. You won't be able to compare financial aid offers.
Early action is not binding. If accepted, you may compare admissions and financial aid offers from other schools and wait to commit to the college until later in the year.

*Some schools now offer Single-Choice Early Action. This option is similar to Early Action, except that you agree to not apply early to other colleges (though you may apply regular decision).

Many ED or EA deadlines occur in the fall. Verify with the college whether you are allowed to apply early action to other schools.
