Be an Aggie

USU is for you


Before You Apply

Choosing which college to attend is a big deal. To make things easier, review our suggested college preparation steps. No matter where you decide to go, you will be prepared to make your be an Aggie, of course. 

Counselors help you set goals and plan your high school courses. 

Your ACT/SAT test score determines your academic scholarship qualification. Take the test as early and often as possible. Note: Admission to Utah State is test optional, but your ACT/SAT test scores will still be considered if submitted.

These classes not only prepare you for more rigorous college courses; they also count toward your college credit load and are less expensive. These classes can also be used toward a comprehensive scholarship review for academic scholarship awarding.
