How to Apply

  • YISD Seniors & Parents!

    Are you ready to start the college admissions application process?

    NOTE: The Ysleta ISD does require all Seniors to submit at least one application to a higher education institution as per District Graduation Requirements.

    Please know there are two different online applications available to help you, the ApplyTexas application and the Common Application.


    If you are planning to attend a public Texas college/university, the ApplyTexas website is the most convenient site to use allowing students to easily "copy" their application to various other Texas schools.

    Watch the videos on the right and use the checklist below, for tips and information on why and how to apply for college using ApplyTexas.
