College Application Process at Summit Academy High School

Apply no later than December break if you are interested in scholarships from the college. Most colleges automatically enter your information into their scholarship data banks when your application is received. There is a great deal of money generated by most colleges that is specifically for their students. You therefore must apply and be accepted before you can qualify for these scholarships. Seniors who wish to attend college need to be certain the counseling department is notified of each and every application made. This includes all online applications and on-site applications. Applying online is highly recommended by most universities today. If you choose online, you must give your counselor the "counselor section� of the application so your transcript can be mailed out. If you do not apply online, as soon as you complete your application, return it to your counselor along with a check for the application fee. Your counselor will complete the application and mail it. Remember, the longer you take to complete the application, the longer it takes to receive a reply from the college. You also risk losing out on your choice of college, if the college you hope to attend ends their application deadline earlier than they advertise. We urge you to complete your applications as soon as possible.
