Application to the College
Admission requirements are different from course registration requirements. All students must have qualifying test scores to be admitted to the college. Students must then also meet course pre-requisites in order to enroll into specific classes.
Print your completed application and keep in your portfolio. You do not need to submit your signed application to the college.
Save your acceptance letter to the college in your portfolio when you receive it in the mail. You may need this when applying to four-year schools.
Students are to take responsibility for their college education and be the ones who complete the application for admission to the college.
