But just as technology helped at tax time with the advent of electronic filing, the computer age is also easing the college-entry blues.The College Board, the group that administers the Scholastic Aptitude Test and other exams, has developed a computer program that lets students build portfolios of their high school records, do research into colleges and financial aid and obtain applications.

Students can use Explorer Plus Guidance and Application Network to send an application to any college that's part of the network.
