Complete the skills assessment

Most degree and diploma programs also require a skills assessment. You can check the program page to see if the ACCUPLACER or equivalent is required for your program. If you need to complete a skills assessment, there is a $15 non-refundable fee.

Request transcripts

Some programs require an official copy of your high school and/or GED/HSED transcript. Check the Admission Requirements section on your program page for more information about your program's requirements.

Also, if you’ve attended another college or university, you’ll need an official transcript from each school. Official transcripts must be in their original sealed envelope and stamped with the school seal. Previously opened transcripts will not be accepted.

Contact each institution you've attended and ask to have your official transcripts mailed directly to:

Some programs have additional admission requirements. Check your specific program to view the Admission Requirements or call us at 920-735-5645 for more information.

3. Apply for Financial Aid

If you need help paying for college, we encourage you to apply for financial aid, which is federal and state assistance that can include grants, loans and/or employment. There are many factors that determine how much aid you will receive. The financial aid application and awarding process takes time. In order to guarantee your award will be processed before your program start date, please apply early. There are also many options for scholarships, grants and work-study.

4. Enter your program

When all of your admission requirements have been met, you’ll receive an acceptance letter in the mail, along with an invitation to sign up for New Student Registration. Sessions are held about 2-3 months before classes begin, so watch for information and instructions in the mail.

Congratulations! You’re ready to begin your classes.
