The college application process can feel like a juggling act.

You’re filling out paperwork, writing essays, managing deadlines, and paying fees. On top of that, you’re dealing with everything else you normally have to do—homework, exams, extracurriculars, and a social life.

Time management is key for you right now, so it’s helpful to have tools specifically designed for the college application process that can facilitate scheduling and organization. To make sure you’re using the right tools—and not wasting your limited time testing out duds—here are some college application time management apps. All of them have been recommended by experienced high school counselors or students who used and loved the apps. The best part: These tools are entirely free to use.
