Admissions Advice

When is the latest date to apply for the fall semester 2022?

My high school doesn't do the Grade Point Average(GPA) system. I'm writing the Cambridge AS levels and since GPA is an important part of the application process, what alternate do I have? We aren't offered credit for completing work or attending a certain number of classes.

Also, when is the latest date to apply to colleges for the fall semester 2022? Like, until which month do I have?

What are the factors that I should tick if I need to be qualified for financial aid?

Hi there, colleges are familiar with the AS levels, so you don't need to be worried about it. Most colleges have deadlines of January 1 or 15. Some have rolling admissions, meaning they accept applications until their class is full. In this case, they may accept applications well into the spring.

If you need financial aid, it will be harder to get, as many don't give any to international students.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions!

So to enroll in the fall semster at a college you’d apply by winter break of your senior year but each college has different deadlines and it can vary a lot. Also do you have a transcript with your grades on it if so that can be used to calculate your GPA it doesn’t need to be calculated on your transcript. If they don’t track grades IDK.

Also the main determination for need based finicial aid is EFC which you can go online and search EFC calculator. Please note it’s not 100% accurate. It’s dependent on primarily your family’s income and assets. Typically income under 50k will get acces to aid. Income inbetween that and 65k is possible but possiblity diminishes and then generally over 65k it’s need based aid is non existent.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’d be more than happy to help!
