February tasks for high school seniors

By Beth Ziehmer

February 02, 2021

It's just a few, busy months away from graduation now for high school seniors.

During your senior year, you will finalize your college choice. This year is filled with admission applications, scholarship essays, financial aid information, and the need to meet deadlines. Throughout your senior year, continue to build your resume by achieving academic success, as well as participating in extracurricular activities. Colleges are interested in well-rounded students.

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

  • Be mindful of deadlines. Always submit information on time.
  • Research Advanced Placement (AP) or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams.
  • Rank your top school choices.
  • Research local scholarships and apply as applications are available.
  • Complete your FAFSA online, if you haven't already. Keep copies of all documents, including your FSA ID, in a file.
  • Register for Mapping Your Future's February 2 or 4 webinar titled "Strategies for making the most of scholarship applications" or listen to the webinar recording, which will be available a few days later at mappingyourfuture.org/services/webinararchive.cfm.
