Note: For some colleges and universities, students may need to complete steps such as 5: Essay, 6: Letter of Recommendation, and 7: Resume, prior to submitting application.
Apply using the college or university website or consider an application that is accepted by many colleges and universities across the US, such as the Common Application (accepted at more than 800 colleges and universities) or The Coalition Application (accepted at more than 140 colleges and universities, application fee waiver offered, and the only option for the University of Florida). Students must create an account to proceed with both the Common Application and Coalition Application.
This may not be needed for the application to Community Colleges (State Colleges, i.e. College of Central Florida), or Technical Colleges, but may be needed for local scholarship applications.
This is an essential part of a college application. Be sure to give these people plenty of time to write a letter — three weeks to a month or more depending on how busy each person is. Remember to ask more people than you need letters in case one or more of the people cannot write a letter in time. Always remember to send a thank-you note!
