May College Planning ChecklistCollege Admissions Season Winds Down for Seniors, Ramps Up for Juniors

Today is decision day! Millions of students across the country, even the world, will be sending in their enrollment deposits to the school they plan to attend this fall. While this signifies the end of a long and sometimes stressful process for high school seniors, it’s just the beginning for underclassmen.  

Here’s the essential college planning list students need this month to prepare for, or wrap up, the college admissions process.  





  • If you haven’t already, send in your enrollment deposit! Today is the deadline for many schools.

  • Now that you’re in and enrolled, use the resources available to you to connect with future classmates and prepare for actually going to college this fall.

  • Tell your teachers and counselors “thank you.” They’ve helped you a lot over the last four years, and now that your college decision is final, make sure you let them know how much you appreciate all their help.

  • Study for AP exams.

  • Keep those grades up!

The end of the school year is almost here! What else do you plan to do this month to stay on track for the end of the school year and the start of summer? Tell us in the comments below!
