Other College Deadlines to Remember

Your financial aid forms, letters of recommendation and SAT or ACT test score reports have deadlines too, and they might be different than the ones for your other college application materials.

Check each college’s website to get the details on the college deadlines for each part of your application. You’ll make sure the admissions officers get the most complete idea of who you are and what you can bring to their school.
