Get a Jumpstart on the Admissions ProcessStarting a college admission process in most cases entails a plethora of paperwork which involves an elaborate set of steps including hand-written application forms. Luckily, this rigorous experience has been completely transformed by the internet.

There are many resources at the disposal of students who might need to obtain transfer credits before applying or for students who simply wish to do additional research before making their final decision. The admissions process is also easier when completing it online. Prospective students can complete their college admissions forms as well as other requirements online, with just a computer, keyboard, and in an hour or two of uninterrupted time.

  1. Call The Admissions Office

Before you start filling out your application form online, endeavor to call the Admissions Office and speak with a counselor. In the course of a complimentary interview, the admissions counselor will speak with you about your academic goals and your background. The counselor will also go over the application process so that you would know what to expect. Finally, the admissions staff can respond to any questions you may have, and guide you on the right track if their academic programs are not precisely what you are seeking for.

  1. Fill Out The Application

Once you’ve been given the go-ahead from the Admissions Counselor, it’s time to complete the online application. This entails a simple sequence of questions including:

Current contact information, citizenship status, academic history, military affiliation if any, academic area of interest, desired enrollment status, and whether or not you need any financial assistance. Once your application is filled out, review your inputted information and hit the “Submit” button. It’s that simple!

  1. Financial Aid

Whether or not you need financial aid, it’s an excellent idea to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor. You might qualify for scholarships and grants that can significantly decrease your out-of-pocket expenses. If you do need financial support, Financial Aid Counselors can guide you through the process and assist you in determining where to apply. There are two kinds of aid:

Scholarships and Grants: These types of financial aid can come from private or public organizations and never have to be repaid.

Loans: These are also offered through private and public organizations but they do have to be repaid, and in most cases with interest.

It’s never too early to start researching financial support options as most financial assistance programs have application deadlines.

  1. Transcripts

At some point, while completing the college online admissions process, you will be required to send your high school and college transcripts (if applicable). If GED is what you have, you can contact the GED office of your state government to request a copy. Once you have completed these steps, you can sit back, and wait for your notification of acceptance.
