And the following are the way you can go about it:
Step 1: If you are a student who is trying to figure out what is it that you would like to study; start out by making a list of your abilities, social/cultural preferences and person qualities. List things you may want to study and do in college. Explore universities by looking at their websites. Talk to friends, teachers and recent graduates of your school. Make lists of college features that interest you.
You can do this exercise while you are taking a break from studying for your boards.
Step 2: Visit the counseling office and meet the counselors there. If your school does not offer these resources then, call The IKC (080-41234927) and set up an appointment and we will be more than happy to help you in the process. You can also send in a direct mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate assistance.
Step 3: There are various quality universities out there that are still open for admission. Some don’t require SATs and a few don’t have an application fee. Research and find out about these universities. Here are some to start you off and do remember if you need additional assistance in finding out the universities then you can always contact The IKC.
- Gustavus Adolphus College (no application fee)- Rolling Admission (SAT not required for admission)
- Indiana University- Purdue University in Indianapolis (IUPUI)- March 1 (SAT not required for admission)
- Kansas State University- May 1
- University of Iowa- March 1 (SAT not required for admission)
- Rutgers University- Application Deadline is over, however the colleges are still taking applications. (SAT required for admission)
- University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point- Rolling Admission (SAT not required for admission)
Step 4: Shortlist 5-10 universities to which you want to apply.
Step 5: You might require TOEFL/IELTS scores. This is an English Proficiency exam that is conducted relatively often. It is an easier exam so, please check the dates, register and go ahead. (Make sure you have a passport with validity)
Step 6: Create a spreadsheet of the college and scholarship application deadlines while identifying all the materials needed for each university.
Step 7: Request for letters of recommendation (if needed) and attested high school transcripts from your school.
Step 8: Prepare college applications as soon as possible
Step 9: Breathe. You and your parents can collaborate and make it possible for you to complete a successful application. As always, The IKC would be more than happy to help you at any step!
