From the Counseling Office

Course Selection

Counselors were in the Language Arts classrooms on Tuesday, February 16, Friday, February 19, and Monday, February 22, to talk with students about course selection for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Students received course request forms at this time. If a student was absent, they should go to the Counseling Office to pick up their forms. Students should talk with their current teachers, counselors, and parents/guardians if they have questions about what to choose. Counselors will return to classes on March 1, 4, and 7, to review course selection choices with students and assist them in entering their choices into Infinite Campus.

Upcoming College Application Deadlines

Seniors: Many colleges have upcoming application deadlines so plan ahead! Be sure to check your schools’ websites in order to determine your deadlines. Order your transcripts at least a week in advance and request letters of recommendation a month in advance. Remember, if you order paper transcripts you must pick them up and send them.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid

FAFSA went live as of January 1, and seniors/parents need to submit it as soon as possible for consideration for many financial aid opportunities as well as many scholarships. Do you need help filling out the FAFSA? We can help! Come to the Post Grad Center for FAFSA support. Parents and guardians are welcome!

Remember: You must submit the FAFSA if you want to apply for federal and state financial aid for college. Many colleges and universities, especially public institutions, also require the FAFSA. Complete your FAFSA through www.fafsa.ed.gov/ (this is the official free application through the U.S. government).
