If you are applying to an institution that requires the Common App, you MUST apply electronically!!!

SUGGESTION:

Write these in your agenda!!!

For the rare paper application!
  • IF the school you are applying to DOES NOT have an on-line application, you will need to download and complete a paper application.
  • To submit a paper application, you still need to list the school in Family Connection, and complete the Transcript Request Form.
  • To process your paper application, bring the application, any supporting materials (essay, recommendations, etc.), a large envelope addressed to the college with 4 stamps to the Counseling Office.

Applying to mcc

If you are planning on attending MCC, or any of the state community colleges, you do not need to apply until the end of January.

MCC does have both an electronic application (usually available at their website late January) and a paper application.

You will still need to follow the process we have described when you apply.
