Apply Now!

All high school seniors can now start applying to college! Not sure where to begin? We are here to help!

Whether you are applying to a college in-state or out-of-state, it is important to get familiar with the different types of college admission applications available to students. 

1. Common Application 

2. ApplyTX

3. Coalition 

Many colleges also have the option for you to submit the admission application directly from their website.

Having options is great, but be mindful of college application fees because they can really add up! Note that many colleges offer an application fee waiver, if you qualify. Stop by the counselor's office for more information! 


What's next?

Once you have submitted your application, be sure to turn in all other required documents in order for an admission decision to be made in a timely manner. Every college is different, but most will require you to submit the following items:

1. High School Transcript

2. SAT/ACT Scores

3. Essay/Personal Statement

4. Letter of Recommendation

5. Resume 

6. Official AP Scores through Collegeboard 

7. Official College Transcript for Dual Credit courses
