Admission to US Colleges


Getting started in the college application process can be a daunting task but one of the most vital part of the College Planning. It requires careful paper work management; the creative energy that must be given to developing key messages and application content and crafting them into personal statements can be all-consuming.

An international student should make an early start. As an international student, you would require more time than domestic students to apply in colleges in the US. You should give yourself sufficient time to research for programs, colleges and financial aid before you start applying.Most U.S. schools encourage international students to contact them at least one year before they plan to enter that school. You must apply to each college and university of your interest separately.

This section of USAeducation.info is  providing guidance regarding application preparations. The College Planning section has devoted space to application with focus on tips and strategies for refining your presentation. The following is the application timeline for starting the process.
