How To Apply to College

Colleges in almost every country now ask students to submit their applications electronically. Some colleges have their own institutional applications; others are part of the Common Application or a larger state system. Students should refer to each college’s website to check its application requirements and timelines.


In order to let the SAS College Counseling Office know that you will be applying to a school, you must complete an Application Notification Form (ANF) for each school to which you intend to apply. ANFs must be submitted well in advance of school’s application deadlines. Your college counselors will keep you updated about ANF deadlines.
