Seniors planning to attend a four-year university next August 2016 must complete the following:

  • Take or re-take the SAT/ACT
  • Visit college campuses; talk to admission officers on campus.
  • Complete college applications during the first semester of the senior year.  Don’t wait until the deadline.
  • Essay prompts for College Applications
  • Order FAFSA pin numbers for yourself and a parent
  • Complete the FAFSA  (federal student aid) form in January.
  • Attend Financial Aid Night at the Berry Center
  • Look at housing options
  • Visit the colleges’ financial aid office to see what aid is available at a particular college.  Each college has a pool of money available for scholarships and this money is usually available on a first come, first served basis. Remember, financial aid includes scholarships, loans, grants, personal savings and work study programs.
  • Check with the college admissions’ office to see if you need to take a THEA or other placement test.  Some colleges will not allow you to register for classes without placement information.

CLICK HERE to get a Wildcat profile packet to give to teachers, counselors and others that you are requesting a recommendation letter from.  Remember to always provide your recommender with a stamped envelope with the college’s address typed on the front ( no return address).  Allow the recommender three weeks to prepare the letter.

You may order official transcripts (sent directly to the college) through the registrar’s office by completing the Transcript Request form. Go to the Registrar link on the school's website for the form. Allow three weeks for processing.  The cost is $2.00. 

Don't forget to order your final transcript for the college you’ll be attending in May before graduation.  The registrar’s office is not open during the summer months and colleges may not allow you to begin classes until they receive your final transcript from high school.
