Seniors
  • Keep track of all acceptances, rejections, and waitlists.
  • If waitlisted, move ahead with other plans. You can always change your plans if you get off a waitlist.
  • Keep your grades up.
  • If you have ruled out any colleges that accepted you, notify them. This is a courtesy to other applicants, and it will help the colleges manage their waitlists and extend the correct number of acceptance letters.
  • Go to accepted student open houses if offered.
  • Choose the college you wish to attend and let Post Grad know!
  • Continue working on scholarships.  Scholarship information is available on Naviance.  Please keep a list of all scholarships offered to you.
As you receive decisions from colleges, please share your news with us!  When you have made your college decision don’t forget to sign the senior window in Post Grad.

Beginning in the upcoming 2012-2013 testing year, ACT is implementing additional enhancements to safeguard a level playing field for all test takers and help ensure the integrity of ACT score results.
 
Enhancements include:
  • Students will be required to provide their gender and a photo of themselves when they register.
  • Students will be required to provide their high school when they register.
  • Types of acceptable IDs have been reduced and all require a photo.
  • On test day, test center staff will match the name and photo on the student’s ticket, the examinee roster, and the student’s photo ID to the examinee who arrives to take the test before granting him or her admission. If students do not bring both their ticket and acceptable photo ID on test day, they will not be admitted to test.
  • Students (including those who hope to test on a standby basis) will be required to register their intent to test and will not be allowed to make any test center or test date changes the day of the test.
More details on ACT’s test security and identification enhancements, including FAQs and links to important resources, can be found at www.act.org/idenhancements.

This fall, the College Board will introduce important changes to help ensure everyone has a fair chance on test day. 
 
Effective with the October 2012 test:
  • You will be prompted to provide an acceptable photo during registration.  The photo will appear on your Admission Ticket.
  • You must present your Admission Ticket with your acceptable photo ID to enter your test center.  NO TICKET, NO ID, NO ADMISSION!
  • Standby test-takers will not be admitted.  (Online requests for waitlist status may be possible until about 5 days before the test).
  • Changes to test center, test date or test type will not be permitted on test day.  They will have to be submitted about 2 weeks prior to test day.
Effective with the March 2013 test:
  • You will be required to provide a photo in order to register for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests.
