REMINDER:  AP Exams are May 6-17.   
SENIORS
Keep track of all SCHOLARSHIPS offered and report them to Mrs. Connally in Post Grad.
 
FINAL TRANSCRIPTS:  How do colleges/universities receive final transcripts?  As part of the senior checkout process, students are required to “clear” through the Post Grad Center.  At that time, they will complete a senior survey on Naviance stating where the final transcript is to be sent.  Final transcripts will be mailed out as soon as available, usually mid June. 
  • Avoid senioritis! An acceptance letter doesn't mean you can stop working.
  • Most schools have a deposit deadline of May 1st. Don't be late! If needed, you may be able to request an extension.
  • Prepare for and take any appropriate AP exams. Most colleges offer course credit for high AP scores; this gives you more academic options when you get to college.
  • Complete exit surveys in Naviance. Your final transcript will be sent to the college you designate in this survey.
  • Send thank you letters to everyone who helped you in the application process. Let your mentors and recommenders know the results of your college search.
  • Keep on top of procuring student loans. Notify your college if you receive any scholarships.
  • Make sure you have signed the senior window in Post Grad.
  • Graduate. Congratulations!
  
JUNIORS
If you have not scheduled your junior conference with your counselor, please do so as soon as possible.  Counselors meet with juniors to do a graduation credit check, preparation for senior year in high school and to discuss post high school planning.
 
The June 8th test is a good time to re take your ACT.  Registration deadline is May 3rd and late registration is May 4 – 17th.

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.

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.
