Send Thank You Notes

You did a good job this year! But your mentors, teachers, and high school counselors helped. Make sure to send them thank you notes before school is out.

Reach Out About Waitlists

On the waitlist? Schools will begin reaching out by the end of May. In the meantime, send any additional information, such as new recommendations or transcripts, over to your waitlist school, and keep track of enrollment deadlines for your first choice.

Look into Campus Living

You’ve made the big choice, now come the smaller ones. It’s time to decide on housing, meal plans, and roommates.

Get Working

Sign up for summer jobs or summer internships. The earlier you build out your résumé, the better off you’ll be come college graduation. Plus, any money you earn over the summer can help with college expenses.
