    About the Private & Out of State Colleges

    Most colleges now prefer (or require) students to apply electronically. Many of these colleges use either the Common Application or Universal College Application. Check to see if a college accepts one of these applications before completing the university-specific application. Always ensure you complete these applications having first registered them on Xello.

    You are able to apply to multiple colleges at once - instead of creating an individual application to each college - with the Common and Universal College Application forms. Note: More information on these applications and links to websites offering assistance are included in a separate section on this webpage.
    Application Requirements & Notes:  Most require ACT or SAT (some colleges do not). Many require SAT subject tests. Make sure you know if a university requires a "supplement," which is generally listed on the application's website.
