Most colleges, including Muskegon Community College, would prefer that students apply online at the college website beginning August 1. Often, the site will have a page to print out and bring to the Counseling Office. We will then fill out the required information and mail it with a transcript. Students must request and send transcripts electronically via Parchment, which is located on the homepage of the high school. Please allow 5 school days for processing. All electronic requests for transcripts are free of charge until August 1 of the student’s graduation year. Students must request OFFICIAL ACT/SAT scores directly from ACT or SAT. (There is a fee assessed for this service.) This can be done at www.actstudent.org or https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/ if the student did not indicate at the time of registration for ACT/SAT to mail scores to prospective colleges.
