College Admissions Process
!

Having worked with a number of homeschooled students over the last several years, CollegeStartOnline has found that there are some important additions to the Common Application that must be made. Homeschooled students apply in the same way that traditional high school students apply, but their applications should sparkle above and beyond.

CollegeStartOnline is good at making the application sparkle–they had a grand slam on all ivy league colleges this year!  Plus, they’re part of our Summer Freebie Extravaganza!

Fun–and fun learning is forever learning!
