Applying to colleges can be daunting - we want to reduce that load for you. Below you will find four helpful steps to prepare yourself for the college application process.
Most students don’t start seriously looking at colleges until senior year. This means that they are searching for colleges, applying for scholarships, and finishing high school coursework while trying to spend time with friends before graduation.
Even if you are unsure of your major, starting your search during your sophomore or junior year can save you time and stress. So start early—it helps!
As much as possible, visit colleges that interest you. When you visit, be sure to ask the important questions: “Do I feel safe here?” “Can I call it 'home' for four years?” “Will I grow, mature, and learn here?” Visiting tells you far more than a website or brochure.
College research is important, but don’t forget: they will ask for your high school transcript. So study hard, pay attention in class, and finish strong.
Here at Patrick Henry College, we waive the application fee before November 1st. In addition, early admitted students receive priority consideration for available scholarships.
