POST GRAD - MAY 2012

REMINDER:  AP Exams are May 7-18, 2012 

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 9th test is a good time to re-take your ACT.  Registration deadline is May 4th and late registration is May5 – 18th.

Students may not be dismissed until an exam has officially ended; do not ask to leave early if you finish before the end of the exam. If you play a sport or have a job, it is your responsibility to inform your coach or employer of your AP Exam obligation, and arrangements should be made accordingly.

Get a good night’s rest before your exam, and eat a nutritious breakfast. You are allowed to bring a snack and beverage for your 10-minute break. However, food and drink are prohibited in the exam room.

You are required to abide by the policies of both the College Board and Smoky Hill during the exam period. Any misconduct will be reported and could jeopardize your AP Exam score.
