Applying for College

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/

Seniors planning to attend a four-year college in the future should take the ACT Test before December of their senior year. The STMA High School Code is 242-209. Students can register online for the ACT at www.actstudent.org.
