The deadline for listing colleges with January 15 deadlines is December 14. Please don’t miss these deadlines. If you need to add a college after these dates, you can, but please tell a Guidance secretary so we can be sure we know about it.
The UMass regular decision deadline is Tuesday, January 15. Deadline for all credentials (including official test scores) is Friday, February 1. Most of you should apply.
It’s not too early to take action regarding financial aid. The FAFSA and CSS Profile (required by many private colleges) are online. Talk to your parents about completing the required forms by your first financial aid deadline. Remember, it is not necessarily the same date as a college’s application deadline. Some FAFSA deadlines are in January. Many are on February 1. UMass’s deadline is March 1. All financial aid forms must be completed by the colleges’ deadlines. Late filings often mean less or even no financial aid.
