Deadlines and Dues

Hello everyone! Happy Holidays!

As this year comes to a close, everyone is feeling at least a little big nostalgic: we remember the good and bad times we’ve had this year, all that has changed and all that has happened. However, try not to get lost in a nostalgic stupor!

For you high school seniors, don’t remember that you need to get applications in! IF you have not applied by now, you MUST see if your school does a late application deadline. While this isn’t the greatest thing in the world, it gives you a second chance to see if you can get into your dream school. Apply ASAP, as you apply sooner there will be more financial aid available.

Additionally, if you cannot afford the application fee, some schools will waive it if you get a guidance counselor to email them and if you have proof that you are on free/reduced lunch or are a low income family. While $30 doesn’t really seem like much, it definitely adds up as you apply to a variety of colleges. Unless money is not an issue, you will also want to start applying for whatever scholarships you can–sometimes you can get paid to go to school.

Once you’ve committed to a college, make sure that you pay your registration fee (each school will call this a different name), a $300-500 fee that ensures you a spot in the incoming freshman class. Loyola deducts this from your first semester’s bill.

Just a few reminders to make sure you have done before the new year! Have a great day, and Merry Christmas!
