September To-Do List

Stay on track this fall with a to-do list.

  • Finalize your main essay and complete your common application so you may begin focusing on your supplementary essays.
  • Finalize your college list, think about Early Decision and Early Action plans, and schedule interviews, if offered.  
  • If you are applying early by November 1 or to a rolling admissions college, complete the following by October 1st: if you are submitting scores, send your official test scores via College Board or ACT, request transcripts and confirm that your recommendations will be sent by deadline.
  • Parents: Register for an FSA ID in preparation to complete the FAFSA in December (it is being overhauled by the Department of Education thus available later than usual). The CSS Profile will be available on October 1 as in the past.
  • Sign up and take the October PSAT unless you have decided the ACT is your test.
  • Sketch out a plan including a schedule for which standardized tests you plan to take in the coming year such as SAT, ACT or AP tests.
  • If you are eligible for accommodations at school, such as extended time, apply early to College Board and ACT for accommodations on standardized tests.
  • Visit at least one college this fall (remote or in-person), attending the information session and going on the tour or an open house, to begin educating yourself about colleges and the admissions process.
