.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.|
|Make the move to campus. Welcome new Buckeyes!|
