    Before you begin: 

    1.  Check out the College Application page on our website: Applying to College.  There are links to the various ways to apply to college (Common App, Black College Common App, Coalition App) as well as information about college application fee waivers.

     2.  Take a look at the page "Do You Have the Scores?to see how likely it is that you may be admitted to specific South Carolina colleges and universities.  Be sure to have your SAT and/or ACT scores sent to the colleges to which you apply.

     3.  Paying for college is always an issue.  We maintain a listing with links to many scholarships popular with Dreher students. 

     4.  Anyone in need of financial aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The District is sponsoring a FAFSA workshop on October 23.
