You’ve submitted your college applications. Congratulations! The hard work is finished, but there is still work to be done. You need to make sure the application was received and that every part of your application has been submitted, such as test scores, official transcript and recommendation letters. This is something you should be doing daily. How do you do it? Through online portals. Let’s walk you through it.
Setting Up Application Portals
Once you have submitted an application to a college, that school will usually send you an email asking you to set up your applicant portal. We can’t stress enough that you should be checking your email every day. You want to set up your portal as soon as you receive this email.
You will be setting up a portal for every school that sends you this email. Depending upon how many schools you applied to, you can be setting up quite a lot of portals. So, you really need to keep track of your login information for each of these portals. Jot them all down in a physical notepad, your computer or your phone. Just make sure you have them in several places so that you don’t lose them.
