College Applications

College applications are done both through shared application platforms and through college websites.  Here is a chart that includes all of the colleges on the shared platforms listed below.  If a college is not on the chart, be sure to check the college's website for the application.


ApplicationU is an app platform specifically for Christian colleges.  The cost to apply through ApplicationU is minimal.

The CSU application is one application through which students can apply to all of the CSUs- Bakersfield, Cal Maritime, Channel Islands, Chico, Dominguez Hills, East Bay, Fresno, Fullerton, Humboldt, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Monterey Bay, Northridge, Pomona, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, San Marcos, Sonoma, and Stanislaus.  The cost is $70 per campus.

Coalition for College Access

Colleges on the Coalition App must “graduate students with low-to-no debt, while either meeting students’ full demonstrated financial need, offering low-cost in-state tuition, or providing responsible financial aid packages.”  Application fees vary.

Common App

The Common App includes almost 900 colleges and is used most often.  Application fees vary.

Most of our students who choose community college either go to Diablo Valley College or Los Medanos College.

Diablo Valley College

Since we are a feeder school to DVC, the admissions rep comes to Berean for a meeting with interested seniors during third quarter each year.  At that time, students receive information to complete their applications to DVC.  Students do not complete community college applications during fall semester.

Los Medanos College

Students who plan to attend LMC complete their applications in the spring semester of senior year.
