checkered flag

You are on the home stretch!  Only a few more weeks and your college applications will be close to done. Here are 4 ways you can use GuidedPath to keep sane during these last few weeks!

  1. Set up Application Plans. Make sure you have green checked boxes for each of your colleges. This means you have set up a application plan for completing ALL parts of your college application and getting it in on time.
  2. Check Application Deadlines.  How many Early Action, Early Decision or Priority applications are you doing?
  3. Organize your calendar.  Using the My Application section, sort college deadlines by My Application. View college application deadlines in RED on your calendar in GuidedPath.
  4. Track Progress. Feel a sense of pride and relief as you check off each milestone using Plan Progress in GuidedPath. You can mark milestones as
    • Not Started
    • In Progress
    • Completed


Use the application dashboard for a “summary view” of your applications and status. Never miss a deadline!  Keep track of your college application deadlines on your Calendar!
