Chalk Talk: Applying to College
When applying to college, students want to be prepared for all the steps involved. First, they will need copies of their transcripts to show their course of study. The teacher recommendations shed further light into this, since they will cover the student’s work ethic, classroom behavior, study habits, and the like. The standardized test scores function similar to the transcript, in that they are intended to show how prepared the student is for college-level work. Families should note that college savings deposits in 529 accounts are not used in determining financial aid, therefore, it can make a huge difference in how much aid you qualify to receive. Lastly, apply for aid as soon as possible. Many financial aid funds are dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis, so the earlier you apply the better off you will be.
