Apply for College

Every Chance, Every Texan Website

Please be sure that as you are beginning your college preparation that you are using the correct FAFSA website. The FAFSA is free to complete and submit. If you are being asked for money, you are on the wrong site. FAFSA for the 19-20 school year opens October 1. You will need your 2017 tax information and a FSA ID. Remember, all college students must do a FASFA every year, not just prior to beginning college.

FERPA Waiver

In order for MHS to release your transcripts while you are still in HS, you must have the FERPA WAIVER signed by your parents. If you are 18, you can sign it. Drop it off by the Counselor’s Office, and transcripts will be released.
