Recommendations for students applying to both two and four year colleges:
- Check with your counselor regarding applications and the sending of official transcripts.
- Check deadlines and admission requirements.
- Applicants should apply to colleges early in the fall as some programs close early.
- Visit the Scholarship Wall in the Guidance Office regularly so you don't miss scholarship opportunities.
- Financial Aid: FAFSA form is filed online.
- Seniors who are looking to establish reciprocity with ND, SD, or WI should apply on-line at http://www.ohe.state.mn.us/
