  6. 6. • Students should check with each college individually as requirements vary by institution • Admission is often determined by a “committee” type process • Many campuses use the Common Application • One application used by over 350 colleges and universities • Accepted in place of the school’s own application and students can apply to many colleges using this one application • Colleges that use the Common Application also require: • An essay (some schools require additional supplemental essays) • Letters of recommendation from your counselor and teacher(s) www.commonapp.org: Provides a list of schools that accept the Common Application in place of their own application
  7. 7. Committee Selection (Private colleges & universities) • Students are reviewed in the context of their entire application. Extracurricular activities, leadership roles, portfolios & auditions, recommendations, and community service can play a more significant role. Comprehensive or Holistic Review (UC) • UC campuses all use the same 14 factors to evaluate applicants (GPA in A-G courses, test scores, # of and performance in Honors/AP courses, strength of senior schedule, special talents/achievements/awards, etc… to name a few) • While all UC campuses use the same 14 factors, they often apply these factors differently. Be sure to review the selection process of each campus Eligibility Index (CSU & UC) • Campuses use a mathematical equation to determine eligibility, primarily based on GPA and test scores. The index will vary by campus.
  8. 8. • Letters of recommendation may also be required for Private Universities and Out-of-state colleges • They are not required for UC/CSU schools • Students requiring a letter of recommendation for college will have to complete the Letters of Recommendation Info Sheet •This gives teachers/counselors more insight into who you are • Students may also require a letter of recommendation for • Scholarships • Special programs or majors
  9. 9. As you are researching colleges, be sure to consider multiple criteria - cost, admission rates, requirements, location, majors available, size, student life – to help you determine a possible good fit college. Your college list should include a broad range of schools, mostly “Safety” Schools – preparation well exceeds admission requirements & costs “Match” Schools – preparation meets or exceeds admission requirements & costs And a few… “Reach” Schools - admission is very competitive regardless of student preparation (historically low admission rates); student does not meet or exceed requirements or the school’s cost exceeds your college budget Research admission criteria and acceptance rates to compare your qualifications with those of students who have been admitted in the past.
