After a student graduates high school, they either get a job or apply to a university or college. The application process is managed by staff and a higher education admissions software program. This is usually a multi-step process requiring students to provide and input personal information such as their name, age, date of birth, academic history, and test results.
The YouTube video “Inside the college admissions process” offers students insight into how colleges look at their applications.
Prospective students must gather the required information and test results when applying for college or university admission. The student must submit the paperwork before the deadline. The college then takes a holistic approach when evaluating whether the student qualifies for their chosen program at the university or college. The admissions team will look at various factors.
Apart from the prospective student’s test scores, one factor they may consider is what extracurricular activities the student was involved in. Also, the admissions team reviews the student’s statement or essay. Teachers can write letters of recommendation for the students, which may be included in the application. It gives the admissions team an idea of how committed the student has been to their academic success.
Finally, the academic admissions team may review the student’s personal and family situation. Some students may qualify for a partial or full scholarship. Based on this and other information, the team assesses if the student is a good fit for the college or university.
