Transcript of FAFSA's done. What's next?

So, the FAFSA's done... What's next?
Transitioning from High School to Post-secondary Education
Do you know where you're going to live?
On campus (check housing deadlines! you must apply!)
Off Campus (with family or off campus apartment/house)
Don't miss your housing deadlines!
Living at home saves you $$$!
Request Transcripts!
You must first submit a temporary transcript and then a FINAL transcript for the end of your senior year.
Speak with your school registrar to handle this. If your school does not have a registrar speak with your counseling office.
File your FAFSA
If you have not done so yet, filing the FAFSA is easy and the form is available online.
Only file the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov!
If you need assistance feel free to contact me for questions.
Tests all Reported/Taken
Are your SAT/ACT scores reported to your high-school and post-secondary institution?
Do you need to take additional placement tests such as the Accuplacer or Aleks (UAF) math placement tests?
Check status of Financial Aid
If you filed a FAFSA more than two weeks ago, contact your financial aid office to determine if the school has received your FAFSA.
Make sure to accept your financial aid on time. Most of this takes place within an online portion of the respected university.
Accept/Decline your Financial Award
Alaska Commission on Post Secondary Education
Make sure you have all required items submitted with your application.
Log in to your school's online portal and check your e-mail regularly to be notified of missing items.
If you've checked but still feel like you're missing something, give the school's admission office a call.
Check Status of Application
E-mail / Call your Adviser
Your adviser will guide you through your class registration process.
You can find their contact information on your school's website. Look under the degree program you are enrolling to.
Contact them as early as possible!
Register for Classes
Keep it general!
Take mostly General Education Requirements known as "GRE's"!
Classes fill up fast, the longer you wait, the less likely you are to get the classes you need.
You have to speak with an Academic Adviser before registering for classes!
Did you know you can rent you books online?
www.chegg.com | www.amazon.com
Ordering/renting books online is a great way to save a lot of $$$
There are some materials that you will be required to buy from the bookstore, usually lab manuals or specific books from your professor.
Attend New Student Orientation
Almost all campus's host some type of freshman orientation.
This is a great way to get familiar on campus.
Plus, it gives you an opportunity to meet other new students!
And they usually have all the clubs and more ways to get involved on campus at freshman orientation.
