E-mail Address

Most colleges communicate a lot via e-mail. It would be in your best interest to use one e-mail for all college related e-mails. I recommend using a more professional e-mail such as your school e-mail. New Tech Students are familiar with their e-mail. For High School students it is: first letter of your first name, first five letters of your last name and the last three numbers of your student ID

Ex: Joe Johnson 123456 = [email protected]


We use to request transcripts. You should have received an e-mail link to register. If you cannot locate the link, you can still go directly to the website to register. It is free to send transcripts electronically. If you have any problems with your account you can contact Mrs. Marciniak in the Guidance Office or Ms. Nelson in in the College and Career Center.

Application Fee Waiver

Fee waivers are available for students who qualify for free/reduced lunch or other extraordinary circumstances. See Ms. Nelson for more information. On your application select "pay by mail" or "pay by check." *MSU & WMU let your qualify right on-line, no paperwork is needed.
