    There are several different ways to apply to colleges.  Of course, you may always go directly to the college's webiste.  But here are some alternatives that may save you time and money if you intend to apply to more than one college: 


    If you feel you need help in applying to a SC college or tech school, visit the SC CAN GO website which lists all of the virtual college applicaton nights in the next few months and includes links to SC college or tech school applications.

    Students applying to UofSC and Clemson may also do so through the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success application. This would allow a student to apply to both institutions more quickly. Access the application through www.mycoalition.org.
