Congratulations! You have now filled out an admissions application to college; however, your tasks are not yet finished! If you're unsure about the next steps to take, continue reading the information below and use the information provided by the college's admissions office. Ultimately, the applicant (yes, you - the student!) is responsible for ensuring all items, including your standardized test score and a high school transcript, have been sent to and received by the college's admissions office.
*HELPFUL HINT! Check your e-mail regularly. Colleges will communicate with you through e-mail about any missing documents, scholarship deadlines, and next steps to take once you have been admitted.
Notify the College Advising Office
- Log into Scoir. In the “My Colleges” section, click on the college name to which you’ve just applied. Drag it from “Following” and drop it under “Applied.” This will notify our office that you have applied to the college. This step should be completed at least 3 weeks before the college’s deadline.
- We will submit your transcript and other required materials (transcript, recommendation(s), counselor report, etc.) to the college.
Send Standardized Test Scores, unless you are applying test-optional.
- Visit ACT or College Board for the SAT to send scores if you did not already do so when you registered for the test. After the test is taken, sending scores to a college costs $16 (ACT) or $12 (SAT) per score.
- The ACT superscore report includes your highest composite test score and highest subscores from each subject area (English, Math, Reading, and Science Reasoning).
- The SAT score report includes all scores unless you use Score Choice to select scores from specific test dates.
*NOTE: It can take up to 4 weeks for a college to receive your scores.
