Your Senior Year

Commitment - Taking Action to Make it Happen

  • Enroll in a solid academic course load. Take Honors and AP classes when possible.
  • Realize that attendance and tardies still matter. Colleges and future employers will often evaluate your commitment and dedication based on number of absences as well as grades.
  • Check credits for graduation.
  • Retake the ACT in September or October, if necessary.
  • Be ready to apply to 3-6 colleges no later than November.
  • Submit college applications a minimum of two weeks in advance of deadlines. Make copies of all application materials for your records.
  • Attend presentations made by visiting college representatives in the College & Career Center. Take time to talk with representatives, particularly from colleges where you plan to apply.
  • Re-visit or visit colleges as needed. Do not make a college decision without first visiting the campus.
  • Complete FAFSA forms after January 1st, preferably no later than February 15th.
  • Students planning on joining the military must take an ASVAB test.
  • Research scholarship opportunities. Apply for scholarships.
  • By May 1st, make your final college choice and give an admission deposit to the one school you will attend.   Decline in writing the offers from all other schools.
  • Complete the appropriate paperwork for your chosen school--housing, extra financial aid forms, etc.
  • Write thank you notes to individuals who wrote letters of recommendation for you.
  • Finish your senior year with the same commitment you have shown in previous years.
