College Admission Information: To apply to college, students must fill out an application to the college of their choice.  These are generally online and fairly straightforward about requirements needed to be accepted.  If a student is applying to a college that requires SAT/ACT scores then the student should sign up for the SAT/ACT during their junior year/early senior year.  Students should always sign up for Financial Aid by completing the FAFSA as soon as possible.  Most schools will guide you through all other steps (orientation, signing up for classes, etc.) through email or U. S. P. S. mail.  

To apply to Mountain Empire Community College, go to and complete an application.  MECC does not require the SAT/ACT but all students must complete the COMPASS test before scheduling classes.  Some good information to study for the COMPASS can be found here: .
