Next steps

  • Complete and submit the Academic Credit Transfer Form: This is intended to start the credit transfer conversation with your sending school. Share this document – it includes a link to full course descriptions in our Curriculum Guide – with your school counselor. Contact us if you or your school needs more information or support with this step!


  • Provide 2 recommendations: At least one recommendation must come from a recent academic teacher, but the second can come from a second teacher, coach, employer, mentor or close family friend (not a member of your family). Please ask your recommenders to complete the Applicant Recommendation Form linked here.


  • If applying for a need-based scholarship, submit a FACTS application & Personal Savings Plan*: Parent(s)/guardian(s) complete forms and submit paperwork to FACTS, while students explore the Investing in Your Future Toolkit to begin putting together their personal savings plan. Visit our Affording a Semester page to learn more about these steps. *Scholarships may not be available for applications submitted after the priority deadline. For the best chance at receiving a need-based award, apply by February 15.
