Tips for Applying to College

Director of Admissions Martha Stolze is sharing her tips on getting to know colleges, exploring financial aid, and submitting an application for admission that stands out.
  • Applying Early Tip: Why apply to college early? So you can cross college applications off your to-do list, relax, and enjoy the rest of senior year.
  • Applying Early Tip: Why apply to college early? You’ll have more time to navigate the financial aid process. Don’t forget to file your FAFSA as well!
  • Applying Early Tip: Why apply to college early? So you’ll have the best possible answer during the holidays when relatives ask where you’re applying to college: “I’ve already been accepted!”
  • Applying Early Tip: Why apply to college early? You’ll have lots of time to visit (and re-visit) the colleges you’ve been accepted to.
  • Campus Visit Tip: Ask about classes. How many students are in a class? Are classes taught by professors? Where can students go for extra help?
  • College Essay Tip: Emotions make an impact in college essays. Don’t be afraid to use humor or feelings.
  • College Essay Tip: Story time! Read your essay out loud to yourself slowly — you’ll catch typos and grammar mistakes.
  • Financial Aid Tip: Submitting your FAFSA is the key to unlocking all types of financial aid — from grants, to loans, to work study programs!

If you’re ready to take the next step in your academic journey, get to know Beloit, connect with your admissions counselor, and submit your application.
