2018-2019 Financial Aid Overview 1
Thank you for attending this year’s Parent University for the College-bound Senior!
I am so excited to be starting another school year in the swamp!
The College & Career Resource Center will now (temporarily) be located in room 210 – that’s right in the commons.
Come by to visit and see the new set up!
Seniors – College applications are now available online and you should begin working on them! Don’t procrastinate! You should be applying to at least 4 universities (at least ONE in-state) and definitely have a “safe” school. If your first, second and third choices don’t work out, at least you know that college is still going to be in your future and you won’t be scrambling come spring.
In addition to starting your applications, now is a great time to continue working on applying for scholarships. Private scholarships are highly competitive and take time so work on a few a week and hopefully you’ll be selected for an award!
Juniors and Seniors – SAT and ACT testing dates will begin in Sept. and Oct. but you can register now. Don’t wait until the last day or the closest locations may be full! If you feel you may qualify for a waiver to cover the testing fee, come by the College& Career Resource Center in Room 210 to talk to me.
Sophomores and Freshman – Now is the time to start exploring colleges, majors, and careers. Don’t wait until the last minute! Come to the CCRC in room 210 to take a career assessment or look through some books to begin the process.
This is going to be a great year!
I am very excited to share with you the NEW Remind 101 codes for the current Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores! Please sign up to receive text messages about scholarship applications, college visits and other announcements. Don’t miss a thing!
