Tips for First Year Applicants:
Do not wait to the last minute to take college entrance exams, complete the application process, and apply for financial aid. Focus on keeping your GPA up and meeting all admission requirements. Do not let friends, money, or familiarity determine where to go to school; look for something different that gives you unique academic and social opportunities that are the best fit for you. Stay on top of things, but remember that you’re only beginning a long path of intellectual and personal discovery, so have some fun along the way!
Tip for Transfer Applicants:
Begin the application process two semesters in advance and never become deterred due to a missing transcript or lengthy application process. Maximize your time and energy while at the community college level—it passes quickly and before you know it, you’ve missed application deadlines and important financial aid dates. Always keep in mind that resources are available at both the community college and university levels to assist you. You have two institutions working for you; use them both to your advantage!
