SENIORS! ARE YOU PLANNING TO ATTEND AN OUT OF STATE COLLEGE? IF SO, YOU MUST TURN IN YOUR CPP RESUME (FORMERLY “BLUE PAGES”)-The CPP RESUME is in your College Prep Packet or are also found on the Edline Counseling page and must be completed and returned in to your counselor, along with any school report forms. For any Dec. or Jan. deadlines, you should have already turned in your CPP resume. Remember that letters of recommendation have to be done before the Christmas holiday to meet your deadlines. Not sure? See your counselor! Counselors WILL NOT write recommendation letters during the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. Please plan ahead. This is the student’s responsibility, not the parents!
SENIORS PLANNING TO PARTICIPATE IN A COLLEGE SPORT MUST FILL OUT NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE FORMS. REGISTER THIS YEAR ON-LINE AT: www.eligibilitycenter.net. You must have your ACT scores before you register. Juniors need to wait to register until the fall of 2016, after they have taken the ACT! Meet with your counselor regarding forms that must go to Mrs. Keiser. Transcripts are a “MUST”.
SO MANY COLLEGES – SO LITTLE TIME!
Visits with representatives from colleges all over the country, are scheduled during the school day from August through April. The details of these visits are announced to all students via the weekly Announcements/Scholarships report, Edline, the Parent Link monthly report, and in the school’s Daily Announcements for the three days prior to that college’s visit. Interested students must sign up in the Counseling Department by 3:30 p.m. the day prior to that college visit. (If the student is unable to attend due to illness, school test/review, etc., the student can always communicate directly with that college. The Counseling Office does have some college materials available.) Visiting with college reps and attending college fairs are great ways to assist in the search for just the right college or university.
