Reason #45,693 Why College Applicant Portals Are Important

The applicant portal is an online dashboard assigned to students by each college’s admissions officers to track their application, be notified of any missing information, possibly alerted to scholarships as well as likely most important to students: receive admissions decisions

Typically, admissions decisions are sent through the applicant portals or email, fewer admissions officers send responses using US Postal Mail. Financial aid award letters are either generated simultaneously with the acceptance letters, or generally within no more than a few weeks (but are likely located in a different tab of the applicant portal and are contingent on a student having submitted their FAFSA and possibly CSS/Profile by the priority deadlines.)

So don’t negate the importance of the college applicant portal as the college admissions great race makes the final turn towards hopefully will be a glorious finish for all involved.
