    2. Select the campus you plan to attend
    3. Submit a new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
    4. Submit the Community College Transfer Scholarship Application

    In order to “TAG” yourself as a high school senior and maintain your acceptance for up to two years, simply select “Guest Access” on the myOleMiss portal.
