TIPS FOR SUBMITTING SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS

ü SAT and/or ACT testing prior to the senior year provides time to retake the tests for improved scores and makes the test scores available when needed for scholarships and college entry.

ü Mail applications well in advance of the deadline.

ü Mail all required forms and documents in the same package to avoid lost forms, incomplete submissions and disqualification.

ü Submit only documents requested. Additional information is not used to determine the applicant’s status.

ü Submit all requested information in the form required (example: GPA in a 4-point un-weighted grade scale).

ü Basic musts for students and counselors: [1] Write clearly; [2] Complete all required information; [3] complete only those sections designated for you; [4] Secure all required signatures; [5] Read instructions carefully; and [6] Submit only the information requested.

ü When submitting tax information for financial aid, be sure the form shows the adjusted gross income, the number of dependents covered by that income, and any other required data. The first page of the standard Federal 1040 tax return provides the information. Submit only copies of tax forms unless originals are required.

ü Apply for Scholarships for which you are qualified.

ü Answer only the questions when given the opportunity for a written response. Additional information is not used to determine the applicant’s status.
