The College Timeline: Setting Up Students for Success

Working with IB teachers and counselors, the parents/guardians of college bound students are the individuals who are supporting the student moving to the next level of their educational journey. Parents/guardians are in a position to help the student understand a timeline is needed to be successful in completing the college application process.  Discussion included the importance of setting up milestone charts for all aspects of the college application process; the writing of the college essay, why a CV is necessary,  securing letters of recommendation, completion the of application, including the common application, the admissions interview, and applying for financial aid, grants, and scholarships. The focus of the workshop was primarily on the US college and university system, yet time was spent on the international college application process.
