Applying to Computer Schools

Applying to Computer Schools

The following resources are provided to help guide you through the college application process.

Generally, admission into higher education in the United States is based on high school grades, college admissions tests such as the ACT and the SAT, letters of recommendation, and an application completed by the student.

Depending on your choice of school, you may be able to apply online using a web-based college application service.

If you are applying to several schools, you may choose to use a "universal" or "common" application form which you would fill out once and send to all of them. However, not all schools accept these applications. You should contact the admissions office of the schools you wish to attend for specifics regarding their application requirements.
