Summer Resources For Incoming Freshman

From NYC College Line:

We want to share some key resources to help the summer transition for those students enrolling in college in the fall. We know that this is a very important time of year and it’s essential that students know where to go and what they have to do in order to successfully enroll in college. Below you will find a few links to checklists and worksheets that can be used by any student in transition, and here you can find Enrollment Tip Sheets for over 50 colleges in the NYC area.

In addition to using these resources, it is vital that students are in close contact with their college during the summer before they enroll, and that they regularly check their mail, their school email address, and school portal account. If students are not receiving regular emails or letters from their college, they should contact the Admissions Office right away.
