18 Florida College System to SUS 1. Start making a plan early - Understand the admission process at the transfer institution - Research the pre-requisite courses needed for the intended major: Some can and should be taken at the FSC prior to transfer 2. Take Transfer Orientation seriously Every institution is different and even though a student may have gone through the process at the FSC institution, they must learn the policies and requirements at the new institution 18

19 Senior Year Academic Rigor Important for seniors to take a rigorous senior year to better prepare themselves for college, also to be more competitive for admissions Students who take high school Pre- calculus or Calculus within one year of college Calculus 1 are far more successful. 19

20 Post Admissions Commitment Accept your scholarships and financial aid awards or verification documents, if needed. Make sure you apply for Bright Futures BEFORE graduation Pay housing and dining deposits. Send final high school transcript with your graduation documented. 20

21 Federal Financial Aid Course withdrawals do not go away--they affect the student s pace to graduation, which is one of the measures of eligibility for federal aid. Students thinking of withdrawal from their courses should check with the financial aid office to find out how it will affect their financial aid (and whether it might require them to pay some money back). 21

22 Applying Early and Adhering to Deadlines Apply early (August, Sept, Oct) of senior year. Allow extra time to get all necessary documents submitted to school (ACT/SAT scores, HS transcripts, etc). 22

23 PARENTS ROLE IN COLLEGE ADMISSION Parents should be effective time managers in helping their student get the admissions applications, scholarship applications, and honors or other special programmatic applications done in a timely manner. Parents should help their student think critically about the type of institutions that they desire to seek admission into with regard to size, academic reputation, and costs. Parents should begin to seek, become familiar with, and discuss available resources at the collegiate level. 23
