It's college admissions season, which means high school seniors and their families are on a wild ride for the next several months as they narrow down their college list and complete their applications. What's one piece of advice that we pass on to families during this season? Stay organized. With so many applications to complete and deadlines to keep track of, it's easy to miss something. That's why, at the request of parents, we created our College Application Manager.

College Application Manager

  1. School name
  2. Admissions deadline
  3. Required standardized test (if any)
  4. Required financial aid applications
  5. Financial aid deadline
  6. Notes

There are eight open spaces on the document for students to write in school information, but the sheet can simply be copied if a student is applying to more than eight schools. Know a student applying to college this year? Pass along this resource.

The College Application Manager can be downloaded and printed here.
