The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at and you may file it any time after January 1, 2015.  Many colleges recommend you file it before February 15, 2015.  If you have submitted the FAFSA, you should receive the Student Aid Report.  Carefully look it over for accuracy.  Errors can cost you thousands of dollars.

Some colleges require the CSS Profile which is available online at  A list of colleges and universities that require the CSS Profile is available at this website.  Families should submit the CSS Profile as soon as possible after January 1st.

Be sure and check out the net price calculators on college websites.  Every college is mandated by federal law to include the net price calculator on their website.  Take this opportunity to see what the out of pocket cost will be to attend the college(s) you are considering.

Now is the time to start your scholarship research.  Scholarship information is available on Naviance.  Check out "Scholarship Strategy" on the left side of the home page.   We have also provided links to Fastweb and on the home page.  You can find both local and national scholarships under the "Colleges" tab. 

Many colleges request a Midyear Grade Report (also called a 7th Semester Transcript) to evaluate your academic progress.  Your fall semester grades play a vital role in either an admission or scholarship decision.  Check the websites of the colleges to which you are applying to see if they require a 7th semester transcript.  If so, stop by Post Grad to request that a midyear transcript be sent. 


At this time you should be working with your counselor to create your college list using the tools on Naviance and attending your Junior Conference.  Junior Conferences can be scheduled starting in February.

The State ACT test will be administered on Tuesday, April 28rd, 2015.  Now is the perfect time to begin preparing.
