Look what is already happened during college application week!! College app week
Senior Information Night PowerPoint!! All slides shown on Senior Information night with detailed information!
Herff Jones supplies all of your graduation supplies. A representative will be here on November 1 to begin taking payments.
Take the summer break or a fall weekend to visit campuses that you are interested in applying. Call the schools admissions office to set up a campus tour. If a school requires an in-person interview as part of the application process, you can also schedule that when you go visit the campus. Some schools allow you to experience a night in the dorms or have summer programs….so be sure to ask when you call to schedule your tour!
College Application Week is coming!!!!!!!!!
Get ready, October 24th-28th the Bruin Career Center and Guidance Office will be hosting a week long college application extravaganza! Come on in and fill out college applications or get help if you have questions. We are here to help you!
When should I apply?
You would be fairly safe if you have your applications submitted by the end of October but look for the application deadlines on each schools website.
If you know for sure where you are going, you can apply using early decision or early action. Keep in mind though that early decision is binding. If the college accepts you and offers you an adequate financial aid package, you must go there.
Early action is not binding so you can still apply to other colleges as part of regular admissions, however many schools won’t allow you to apply to other schools as part of their early action.
Do you have questions about scholarships? Not sure how to fill one out? When it is due? Do I qualify? These and more can be answered just see Val, Darcie, Dunn, Fulton, or Moncrief in the Bruin Center or Guidance and Counseling Office.
NEW CHANGE !!!!!! FAFSA opens on October 1st. Be sure to plan your FAFSA events now! Get together and submit those FAFSA’s! Go to FAFSA.gov for application and submission details.
