Below are the tasks you should complete during the month of December:

  • Finalize admission applications.
  • Research and apply for other financial aid, including grants and scholarships.
  • Watch for early admissions notices.
  • Research deadlines at the college you plan to attend, such as for housing applications, school-specific financial aid applications and deadlines.
  • Develop a college application resume to highlight your activities, achievements, etc.
  • Organize scholarships, certificates, articles, etc. to illustrate your achievements and create a portfolio to display them.
