Steps to Getting Started

Before you begin the application process, it’s a good idea to gather the following materials:

  • Social Security Number.* If you have a DACA issued social security number, do not include it in your application. *If you are not a US citizen, you will also need your Alien Registration Number or VISA information.

  • Previous education information. Know the names and dates (month and year) of all high schools and colleges you’ve attended.

  • Email address. This is where we’ll send follow-up information about your application. If you do not have one, create one before you apply.
