The Honorable Lynne K.


Do you accept the PSAT or other tests? What if I am accepted, but don't get my first-choice classes? Students are placed in courses on a first-come, first-served basis.

The sooner you complete all parts of your application, the better your chances of getting in your first-choice courses. You will be placed in your second or third choice course depending on availability if your first preference course is full.

We can place you on a wait list for your first-choice class in case a space becomes available throughout the application and final enrollment processes.

You will be notified before any changes are made to your course placement.
