College Admission Rep Visits
College Admission Rep Visits are held during PASS (advisory) & Lunches throughout the fall and winter. It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a potential school and ask lots of questions! The schedule of visits can be found in Naviance as well as posted on the bulletin board outside the Career Center. Students should sign up in Naviance to attend a visit.
Naviance & College Applications
Students applying to colleges need to create a list of colleges in Naviance to which they will be submitting applications. Transcripts can be requested at the same time. Check early with each college or in Naviance to determine the requirements of the application: letters of recommendation, SAT or ACT scores etc. (Not all schools need these.) If a student determines they are no longer interested in applying to a particular college, it is extremely helpful to the Counseling staff if the student indicates this in the Naviance college list. Once the decision has been made as to which institution the student will be attending, that should also be noted in Naviance so the final transcripts can be sent.
