Students and parents can come during the school day and during the Parent/Teacher conferences in the evening to use our computers to apply to a Montana college. Resources will be available to help with any questions and with the process itself. ALL Montana schools are either deferring or waving their application fees during College Application Week! Some Montana schools require an online application while others require a paper application. Seniors will be provided with more information about the process which, in the end, requires them to register their application with Mrs. Slagel. Only one application per student will qualify for the waiver or deferral.
