Juniors: Advice for students with talent in the arts and athletics


For students with talent and interest in athletics or the arts, applying to college requires extra preparation and planning.

Athletics: If you hope to play Division I or II sports in college, register with the NCAA Eligibility Center by the end of the year. And if you have not already, download the Guide for the College-Bound Student Athlete on the website.

Arts: If you plan to study one of the arts in college, submission of supplementary materials demonstrating your talent requires thought and planning. You should be working on completing any audition tapes, art portfolios, theatre audition pieces or other special materials that may be required for admission to the programs you are considering.


For more information about the extra steps students interested in the arts and athletics must take in applying to college, see Chapter 18, “Students with Special Talents” in College Admission: From Application to Acceptance, Step by Step.
