Your student has applied to college! What should they be doing now?


   Signing up for campus portals as necessary (information shared in their
   email). Save usernames and passwords and check the portal regularly.

   Make sure you’ve completed FAFSA or CADAA and maybe CSS Profile (private
   schools) to keep your financing options open. If you don’t want to complete
   the FAFSA please fill out this Opt out Form
   and bring it to the CCC or scan and email it to erikapistoni at berkeley.net.
   Every senior needs to either complete the Fafsa application or the Opt
   out form before graduation.

   Keep working hard in school. Students are conditionally accepted and are
   expected to maintain the same kinds of grades they applied with.

   Keep track of any changes since applying - good and bad - as they will
   likely want to share that with schools if prompted or waitlisted.
