Applying to Colleges:
SENIORS: Pay attention to priority deadlines when you’re applying to schools. These deadlines usually apply for scholarships!

         K-State: December 1
         KU: November 1
         
FHSU: November 14
        Wichita State: November 1
        Cloud: March 1

Letters of Recommendation:
When you request a letter of recommendation (LOR), it is best to request in person, but phone or email can suffice if you cannot meet with that individual personally. Ask if they would be willing to write you a letter of recommendation, tell them what it is for, and when you need the letter by.
Tip: If you provide that individual with a filled out BRAG sheet it can better help them to write the best recommendation letter possible.

BRAG Sheet for Letter of Recommendation (download & fill out on your computer, email or print & give to individual)

2. Click Create an FSA ID
Student tip: Use a personal email address and not your school email. Your school email will eventually be shut down and you will want to be sure you can still access this email account for retrieval and confirmations, etc.
Parent tip: If you have everf created an FSA ID for another student, you can use the same FSA ID.
