What you'll need

It's a good idea to have everything prepared before you start your application so you're not trying to track down information at the last minute. Here's what you'll need:

  • Transcripts. You want to ensure the information you enter is accurate.
  • Test scores. If you're a freshman or sophomore applicant, you'll have to include your scores from the ACT Plus Writing or the SAT Reasoning Test. (If you're applying for fall, be sure to complete these tests by December.) All applicants should report scores for any SAT Subject Tests, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, TOEFL or IELTS exams they have taken. 
  • Annual income for 2011 and 2012 (your parents' if you're a dependent; yours if you're independent.) This is optional unless you're applying for a fee waiver or for the Educational Opportunity Program.
  • Social Security number, if you have one. We use this to match your application to things like your test score report, final transcript and, if you're applying for financial aid, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
  • Citizenship status. You must enter your country of citizenship (or "No Selection"). If your country of citizenship is outside the United States, you'll need to provide your immigration status and your visa type.
  • Statewide Student ID (optional). Each K-12 student public schools is assigned an ID number. If it's not printed on your transcript, ask your counselor or registrar.
  • Credit card. If you prefer to pay by check, you can Email your payment.
