Freshman year is just around the corner—how cool is that?! But before you start sizing up a sweatshirt with your new school’s colors, it’s time to take a final assessment.
We’re not talking about your college expectations or school supplies, we’re talking about everything you need to get done before you set foot on campus.
You may think you’ve dotted all your I’s and crossed your T’s, but give this checklist a read over to guarantee you’re all set for your first day of college.
Financial Aid Follow-Up
As you’ve probably found out by now, getting in to college was just the beginning—paying for it is where the real challenge begins. Make sure to follow-up with your school’s financial aid office to ensure all money-related situations are covered. Most schools require an initial enrollment deposit at the beginning of May, so if you’ve already submitted yours double check to confirm it’s been processed.
Likewise, once you receive your financial aid offer take a close look at what’s being offered. Whether you’re using loans, scholarships, or a savings account for funding, it’s crucial you know exactly how much you owe and how much is covered.
