Applying to College

Procedure for College Applications

  1. Go to the specific college’s website and complete the online application.  Pay the application fee online with a credit card, or mail a check via US Mail.  

  2. Log on and register at www.parchment.com, follow the instructions to request your transcript and ask that it be delivered to the college you are applying to.

  3. Your counselor will receive your transcript request from parchment and any requests the college has for a counselor recommendation (Secondary School Report).  Your counselor will complete the required information online.

  4. You will receive an email confirmation from www.parchment.com when your transcript has been sent.

  5. If you need teacher letters of recommendation, you may either give the teachers stamped, addressed envelopes or mail the letters yourself.

  6. If you are applying to multiple colleges, consider using http://www.commonapp.org/ to submit multiple applications at once.

NOTE:  Your counselors require 5 days to process your application, 10 days if you need a written recommendation.   If you have not filled out the Student Information form you have received in home room please do so.  This form helps counselors complete the SSR form.  Please be organized and responsible and watch those due dates! Be aware that each college has its own particular application and each college sets its own application procedures.  Information on requirements for Indiana Colleges can be found on www.learnmoreindiana.org.
