*    Applying to College

    Seniors should apply to 4 year colleges and universities they are interested in attending during the first semester of their Senior year. Universities and colleges have different deadlines and may require online or paper application.  Community colleges and most trade school applications are completed in the second semester.  Check the college websites for the latest information.  Remember to follow their directions exactly.  

    Arizona universities have different deadlines.  Their websites and college representative are the best source for this information.  ASU, U of A, and NAU require on online application.  All 3 Arizona universities ask that applicants enter their high school grades and require only a final transcript in May after your graduation.  You  may use a copy of your transcript from Synergy.

    Each of the 3 Arizona universities have application fees.  This fee can be waived.  Near the end of the online application, you will be asked to select the type of payment.  Select the one that allows you to pay later.  Students applying to NAU may enter a code to cover the fee.  Get the code in the Career Center.  For ASU or U of A applications, fill out a fee waiver form to cover this fee.  Seniors can pick up the fee waiver form in the Career Center or Counseling Center lobby.

    Out-of-state or private colleges may also charge application fees.  Contact the college admissions office to ask if the application fee can be waived.  Grand Canyon University does not have an application fee but does require a transcript.  You can arrange to have one sent by going to the Career Center.  

   For out-of-state colleges, please provide a mailing address  so that Independence will be able to mail or fax your official transcript.
