There are many different types of college applications and we encourage you to do your research about what fits best for your individual needs. Not all colleges use every application- make your college list before you begin creating accounts. We think the Common Application is a great place to start because so many required documents are linked to your accounts to make the application process as seamless as possible for your, your counselor, your parents, and your teachers.


If you need help trying to determine the best way to apply please email Mrs. Bishton to discuss your options at lbishton@richland2.org. Below you'll find a link to our Application Tracker. Please use this document as needed to organize your college applications.
