Step 2: STUDENTS MUST APPLY ONLINE: Applications may be obtained by going to the universities’ websites. Application Fees for online applications require a credit card. You may use the Career Lab (B100) to apply online if you do not have access to a computer outside of Central.


Step 3: ORDER ACT/SAT SCORES: Universities now require that students have their ACT and/or SAT scores sent directly from the testing service (www.act.org or www.collegeboard.com). You may have already requested that your scores be sent to a particular school(s) when you took the admissions test(s). Your ACT/SAT scores must be sent to every college you apply to.


**Colleges WILL NOT accept ACT/SAT scores from Walled Lake Central.

They must be sent from the testing organization directly


Step 4: REQUEST TRANSCRIPTS: Students must request transcripts electronically on www.parchment.com (see instruction sheet)


**PLEASE BE AWARE** YOU MUST request your transcripts be sent to your particular college(s) on Parchment each time after you apply.

Common Application Colleges/Universities: Your transcript request is sent directly to your counselor from the Common Application. See www.commonapp.org for more information.


We require up to five business days to process all applications.

It is important that students follow any deadlines closely.

Do not wait until the last minute as your counselor may not be available.
