When you provide your email address to a college, that is the address the college will use to send you messages. I strongly recommend that you use a professional email address. You can create an email address that incorporates your first and last name. Consider the impression your email address would make in an admissions office. After all, you do not want admission representatives to be alarmed because of an inappropriate email address.
In addition, make sure to check that email account frequently. You don’t want to miss important messages from colleges because you forgot to check your email address. Also, check your junk mail because it is possible that important messages might have been filtered and sent directly to your junk mail instead of your inbox.
