To do list

All Year Review:

Work hard all year; second semester grades can affect scholarship eligibility. Stay involved in after-school activities, and seek leadership roles if possible.

Fall Review:

Meet with your school counselor to make sure you are on-track to graduate and fulfill college admission requirements. If you haven’t done so already, register for and take such exams as the SAT Reasoning Test, SAT Subject Tests, or ACT for college admission. Check with the colleges you are interested in to see what tests they require. Apply to the colleges you have chosen. Prepare your applications carefully. Follow the instructions, and PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO DEADLINES! Well before your application deadlines, ask your counselor and teachers to submit required documents (e.g., transcript, letters of recommendation) to the colleges to which you’re applying. To prepare to apply for federal student aid, be sure to get a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov so that you can complete your application and access your information online. One of your parents also should get a PIN.

Winter Review:

Beginning October 1, complete and submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible, along with any other financial aid applications your school(s) of choice may require. You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov or on paper, but completing the application online is faster and easier.
If you have questions about the federal student aid programs or need assistance with the application process, call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or the TTY for the hearing impaired, 1-800-730-8913. After you submit the FAFSA, you should receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) within three days to three weeks. Quickly make any necessary corrections and submit them to the FAFSA processor. Complete any last scholarship applications.

Spring Review:

Visit colleges that have invited you to enroll. Review your college acceptances and compare the colleges' financial aid packages. Contact a school’s financial aid office if you have questions about the aid that school has offered you. In fact, getting to know your financial aid staff early is a good idea no matter what—they can tell you about deadlines, other aid for which you might wish to apply, and important paperwork you might need to submit. When you decide which school you want to attend, notify that school of your commitment and submit any required financial deposit. Many schools require this notification and deposit by May 1.

To Explore:

Refer to Part B of Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid at www.studentaid.ed.gov/guide as you work through the FAFSA process. Make informed decisions about student loans; the following resources are important at this point:
“RECEIVE” (www.studentaid.ed.gov/repayingpub) Funding Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal Student Aid, especially the sections headed “Borrower’s Responsibilities” and “Borrower’s Rights” (www.studentaid.ed.gov/guide)

Parents To Do:

Work with your child on filling out the FAFSA (see “FAFSA Filing Time” for specific instructions). Encourage your child to seek out and apply for other scholarships and grants. Parental support is a huge deal!

To Explore:

Make sure your child’s personal information is safe when he or she applies for financial aid. For tips read “Student Aid and Identity Theft”. Read IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Higher Education to see how you might benefit from federal income tax credits for education expenses. Help your child learn about the responsibilities involved in accepting a student loan by reviewing Your Federal Student Loans: Learn the Basics and Manage Your Debt (www.studentaid.ed.gov/repayingpub) with him or her. Look at communications from schools to which your child sent FAFSA information. If a school has offered Federal Direct Loans (also called William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans, Direct Stafford Loans, or Direct PLUS Loans), the Direct Loan Basics for Parents brochure might be useful to you.
