Getting into college isn't easy. There are applications, essays, forms, tests, transcripts - and you're winding up high school, too. But we can help make it easier with this checklist for getting into our college.
1. Do your homework
Ugh, more homework - but it's worth it. Check out the Office of Admissions and Records' Web site. It has a whole lot of important info like deadlines and scholarships. And come see for yourself what the big whoop is about - plan a visit to our campus!
Fill out the Texas Common Application on the Web. And not to worry: There are instructions. To get to them, click Things to Know on the right of the Texas Common Application Web page.
The waiting is the hardest part. That's why the Office of Admissions and Records lets you check your application and records online. But keep in mind that it takes at least three weeks to decide on your application.
After you get your acceptance packet in the mail (Congrats!), be sure to tell us you're coming by accepting your admission offer online or returning the admission acceptance card you've got in your packet. We'll save a place for you.
5. Sign up for a new student conference
New Student Conferences are a must: You can't register for classes if you don't go to one. And bring your parents. We'd love to meet them.
6. Work out the details
AP, CLEP, financial aid, health insurance, housing, immunizations, part-time jobs, scholarships - check out Now That You're Admitted to find out important info about these and more.
