Step 1: Complete Applications and Set Passwords

  • AMCS Application

    After attending the Information Night presentation or viewing the PPT presentation, your next step is to fill out the AMCS Application. The application takes about 15 minutes to complete.


    UAA Application

    UAA requires AMCS students to apply to the university as non-degree seeking to generate a UAA ID which allows students to enroll in college courses. UAA also requires the parent or guardian of a minor to complete the Student Parent/Guardian Authorization Form.
