.Keep this handy list in front of you during your senior year

All Year Long:

Have fun, keep your grades up, and don’t get senioritis.

Take and/or retake the ACT/SAT. Even if you already have a high score, every point could qualify you for scholarships or opportunities.
Apply to all colleges of interest to you. It is a general suggestion to apply early (Ohio State's early action deadline is November 1 and the final deadline for the Columbus campus is February 1).
Apply for scholarships and financial aid by February 15. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) determines your need-based aid and our college’s scholarship application will determine your merit-based aid from the college level.
Notify the university of your decision to attend by May 1 and pay the acceptance fee. Housing contracts begin to be e-mailed in mid to late March once the acceptance fee is received.
Attend orientation.
Make the move to campus. Welcome new Buckeyes!
