Application Process

Getting to College

Each application for a particular post-secondary education system has certain eligibility requirements ranging from minimum GPA, specific required courses, personal statement or essay, admission tests, and supplementary documents.  To make sure you have all the necessary requirements, it is extremely important to research the specific application process prior to applying.  We recommend making a checklist for each school or program.

Prior to beginning the application process, start to gather:

  • Transcripts
  • GPA Calculation
  • Test Scores
  • College Essay Questions or essay ideas
  • List of potential colleges and campuses
  • Brag sheet with information regarding your achievements, involvement, community service, work experience, etc.
  • Professional email account for college communications
