    Salve JF,
    Negli Stati Uniti si dice college ma nel quasi tutto il resto del mondo si dice university. Per esempio nella Nuova Zelanda college è allo stesso livello di high school negli Stati Uniti. Penso chè voglia dire university application process e si possa tradurrla come processo di applicazione universitaria o qualcosa di simile.
    Ciao

    For what it's worth, I've never heard it referred to as simply "the college process" before. "College applications process" is, in my opinion, both more common and more accurately descriptive.

    six years later.......
    I just came across this thread by chance and thought I would add a comment from another English speaker. "The college process" is definitely a short-hand term but immediately clear to students, parents and teachers here in the States.
    It
    refers to the entire "college applications process" as Trentina pointed out, including up to a year or more of pre-planning, visits to college campuses, financial aid planning, etc. before any real application forms are even considered. Here's one example: http://thecollegeprocess.com/

    Thanks Jo.

    It made absolutely no sense to these British ears!
