College-Bound Seniors: Summer Checklist
- Harper College
- June 1, 2015
Congratulations! You've finished your senior year. You flipped your tassel at graduation, hugged friends and family. Maybe you even shed a few tears.
High. School. Is. Over.
But there are still a few loose ends you should tie up over the next few months to make sure you start over strong as a college freshman:
- Ask your counselor to forward your final transcripts to the college of your choice and find out if there may be any additional financial aid available. Every little bit helps!
- Contact the college and find out the payment requirements for tuition and fees due for on-campus living (if necessary).
- Investigate any on-campus work possibilities at the college or university.
- If you just can't wait to get started on your college career, find a gen ed offered as a summer class. Start taking advantage of summer opportunities to focus on classes you know will be a challenge to take during the semester.
Whether you take classes, work multiple jobs or both, be sure to find some time to relax and celebrate. You've earned it.
Have a great summer!
