Step 2: Submit your transcript.

Ask your high school to send us a copy of your academic transcript. It can be emailed ( or mailed to:

Step 3: Apply for financial aid.

Once you have completed your application and have been accepted into the program, we will start processing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Minnesota Dream Act Application. Currently, because we have not received final confirmation regarding our participation in federal aid programs for the college, we cannot provide individual financial aid estimates to students.

We anticipate that we will be approved for participation in federal aid programs for the college. When we receive final confirmation, we will process all of the financial aid files that are complete, and contact students who need to submit additional documents to complete their files at that time
