  • The appropriate principal and local superintendent must sign the form on the reverse side of the “Application for Admission” certifying that the applicant has the appropriate average and recommends the applicant be admitted to this program. 

  • A new application and an updated official high school transcript must be submitted each semester the student attends the College.

  • The applicant must be in grade 10, 11, or 12. (See ID statement) .
