Applying to college

If you are planning to attend a four year university directly after high school, be sure you are aware of application deadlines for your school of choice. (Some are in November and December!)  Four year colleges and universities will have testing and admission requirements.  Be sure to you have met the requirements before you apply. 

For colleges and universities in Texas, you are able to complete one application and submit it to those choices.  If you plan on attending a junior college, community college, or technical school plan to apply in the Spring.

Next, you can begin searching scholarships on the database provided by the school.  They are organized by date due, and as we move closer to the Spring semester I will add local scholarships when they come in.  In the search bar, type in Carlisle and all local scholarships available at the time will pull up.(there are none currently)

FAFSA- Free Application for Federal Student Aid

The FAFSA will open in October for Seniors.  This application must be completed in order to qualify for grants, financial aid, or scholarships for college.  We will have financial aid experts on campus in October to help with this process.  I will let you and your parents know when we set a time and date later this month.

TSI Testing

We are an approved TSI testing site.  The TSI is the required college readiness test for all Texas colleges and universities, junior colleges, community colleges, and technical schools.  It is made up of a Reading test, Math test, and Writing test.  We will begin taking the TSI tests in your math and English classes before the end of this semester. I will explain more about TSI testing when I visit with you in Government!
