Class of 2022

The time has come to hit the ground running. Here are some things that need your attention this fall.

Fall
: Leave all options open. Remember, you are seniors and your senior year will be busy. October 1st, the FAFSA and WASFA open. To see if you should fill out the FAFSA or WASFA, please go Ready Set Grad for more information about financial aid. To find out more about the FAFSA, go to the FAFSA website to find out what you'll need to file an application.  It's never too early to obtain your FAFSA ID.

You will need to file your FAFSA or WASFA to be eligible for financial aid or scholarships.

ACT and SAT

SAT:  www.collegeboard.org


*Please check website to check the registration deadline 

Because the COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult or impossible for many students to take the ACT and the SAT, the vast majority of American colleges and universities chose to institute temporary (or, in some cases, permanent) test-optional policies. Schools in this group included all of the Ivy League universities, most large public universities, and many, many small liberal arts colleges.

While no one can be sure yet how these new policies will affect admissions trends at these schools, a larger question hangs over the proceedings for current juniors: what does this all mean for them? Which colleges will be test-optional for the Class of 2022?
