After You Apply

Check Your Email & College Portals!
Be certain to reply to any further requests for grades or information from the colleges as soon as they arrive. Sometimes additional information is needed for colleges to make their decision.
Senior Year Grades Matter
Keep working hard in your classes and do not drop your core classes. The college expects you to complete courses listed on your application with Cs or better. If it is absolutely necessary that you change your schedule, it is your responsibility to notify each college admissions office and explain your decision to drop.
This is a great time to be searching for and applying to scholarships. The Scholarship Page on our website keeps an updated list of local and national scholarships, and has links to free scholarship search engines.
Be Patient
You will gradually receive your letters of acceptance, with a majority of them arriving during March and early April.
Financial Aid
Create an account at WebGrants 4 Students to check your Cal Grant status. Financial aid awards are usually sent about two weeks after the acceptance letters.
Student Intent to Register
You will have until May 1st to submit a deposit to the college you plan to attend in the fall. To be fair to the colleges and other applicants, please do not make multiple deposits. By then, you have had more than enough time to research and decide.
