You can find a college or university's application form on its official website, but many are accepting the Common Application, which can save you time and energy if applying to multiple institutions.
Tips for College Applications
- Read. Inspect each application page and read all directions.
- Show integrity and literacy. Be accurate and honest as you correctly spell and present your information. Prepare essays as a draft, finalize and then upload to the application.
- Proof. Read several times for spelling and grammar.
- Send official test scores. Go to College Board’s SAT site or the ACT’s site to send official SAT and ACT scores to your colleges of interest. Remember, colleges will need official documents to make an offer of admission.
- Request a review. When the forms are completed, ask someone you trust to review them one more time. Save the completed application to your hard drive or print a copy if mailing in the forms.
- Inform UNHS. Students graduating from UNHS should send a notification to email@example.com when they have submitted their application to let us know if we will be receiving any forms.
- Request transcripts. UNHS students needing official transcripts can request them online through the Parchment Secure Transcript System website or by mailing or faxing a completed Transcript Request Form.
- Be patient. Within 3-4 days, you should receive confirmation from the college concerning the arrival of an electronic application. Mailed applications may require additional time. Avoid the temptation to send both an electronic and mailed application to a college as this may cause confusion.
