  • College Tests and Entrance Fees

    SAT/ACT:  Both of these college entrance tests have fees attached to them. See their respective websites for details.  Fees are less expensive if paid by the earliest deadlines, so plan ahead to save money.  See http://www.collegeboard.com for information about the SAT and http://www.actstudent.org  for information about the ACT.

    Transcripts:  Transcripts for colleges should be ordered through your MyPaymentsPlus account.  You should also add the college to "Colleges I'm Applying to" list in Naviance. Some scholarship applications also require a copy of your transcript. The fee for each transcript is $5.00, and they must be ordered 48 hours in advance. The final transcript to send to your college in June is free.

    Application Fees:  Colleges charge a fee to process your application and decide whether to accept you or not.  This means you want to limit the number of colleges to which you apply, so do some careful research while you have time over the summer. The fee for each college varies, so see their individual websites for specific information.

    College Deposits/Down payments:  In the spring, colleges will ask you for some kind of deposit or down payment to secure your spot at that school. You only pay this to the college you are actually going to attend.  Failure to pay your deposit means that your spot will be given to somebody on that college’s waitlist.
