College timeline for high school seniors

September - November

Test time. Take the SATs and/or ACTs as early as you can (so you have time to retake them later if necessary) and prep any early decision or early admissions applications you have as well as applications to schools with rolling admissions policies. Because most early admissions applications are due between Oct. 1 and Nov. 15, it's crucial to get your teacher recommendations and complete the paperwork now. Before slipping your newly completed applications in the mail or submitting them online, call each school you're applying to and see what scholarships are offered and if they require financial aid paperwork along with your application.

Click on the dates in the timeline for full details on what to do during that time period.
