Juniors should be exploring colleges and looking at requirements. Make an appointment in the College and Career Center (F-204), to discuss them. Please click on the link below (Assessing Your List of Colleges), or read 'Factors to Consider when Choosing a College' in your College Planning Packet to ask yourself what you are looking for when assessing colleges:

Create a master list or calendar that includes:

• tests you’ll take and their fees, dates and registration deadlines

• college application due dates

• financial aid application forms required and their deadlines (aid applications may be due before college applications)

• other materials you’ll need (recommendations, transcripts, etc.)

• your high school’s own application processing deadlines

• If you can’t afford application or test fees, college counselor Mrs Gomer can help you request a fee waiver.
