Completing college applications is a major accomplishment that deserves some R&R and a celebration. However, part 2 of the college application process is making sure you filed college admission scholarship applications by deadlines. In addition to an early admission deadline of November 15, for example, there may be a December 1 deadline to apply for scholarships. Some colleges extend their scholarship deadlines and remind applicants of scholarship deadlines. That was the case this month with the University of Tennessee at Knoxville which extended their deadline from December 1 to December 15.
Look at the websites where someone in your family is applying to see if there are scholarship deadlines coming up. Applying for those scholarships could significantly reduce the bill your family will have to pay. Keep in mind that teens find this process daunting and unfamiliar. They need encouragement and "how to" help to have the best outcomes.
