  1. The first thing the student needs to do is select their college. This can be done alphabetically or by state. Once the student has located the right career college, they can click on the college's name to continue on to the next step.

  2. Next the student will need to select their high school. To find the high school, the student will select the state it's located in from the first drop-down menu, the city from the next menu and the high school from the third menu, then click "Submit" to proceed.
  3. Now the student is ready to enter in their contact information. Students should complete all fields and check to make sure that their information is correct before submitting. Note: Counselors should not enter their e-mail address for the student, as this will delay the approval process.
  4. Once all information is entered, the student should read the usage agreement. Students must consent to the agreement by checking the "I Agree" box below the agreement in order to submit the application.

All done! The student will receive a confirmation that looks like this:
