14 Feb What happens next after getting accepted into college? | Arizona State University
Congratulations! You’ve been admitted into college, but now what? Director of international recruitment operations at Arizona State University, Cesar Flores Marquez, talks about the touchpoints that universities will have with a student and next steps for being prepared to go to college.
Education institutions usually notify a student of their college admission by physical letter and an email. Both the letter and email will provide instructions for next steps, or refer students to an associated website that outlines everything for you. Here’s what ASU’s webpage looks like: https://admission.asu.edu/first-year/admitted
Next steps include things like..
-Activating your student ID
-Applying for scholarships
-Filling out the FAFSA
-Confirming your attendance by paying an enrollment deposit
-Registering for orientation
-Securing housing and university meal plans
-Determining what student records parents need access to
These tasks aren’t just unique to ASU. Wherever you plan to attend college, make sure you complete important steps like filling out the FAFSA and applying for scholarships. Who doesn’t want free money, right? https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa
Cesar Flores Marquez reminds students that being proactive is the key to being successful as a college student. Unlike high school, students need to act independently to submit documents on time and register for classes. Remember to ask for help if you need it. Colleges don’t expect you to be an expert at going to college. If you feel like you are missing information or something doesn’t make sense to you, reach out to your institution of choice and ask for help. Representatives are standing by and excited to help you start your next chapter off on the right foot.
