College + Career Planning for Seniors

Seniors: If you did not schedule a senior meeting with your counselor…

  • Review your transcript and current schedule on Infinite Campus to make sure you are meeting graduation requirements.  See your counselor if you have questions or concerns.
  • Complete Naviance “Senior Planning Worksheet” (under the About Me tab)
  • Consider registering for another ACT or SAT (with writing)
  • Continue researching colleges (use Naviance and College Board’s college search tools)
  • Ask 2 teachers for Letters of Recommendation – give them deadline, ask what they need to be able to write the letter (resume, Naviance survey, etc) Check to see how many letters your college/s need for your application.
  • Update your Colleges I’m Applying To list on Naviance
  • Divide up colleges into “reach”, “target”, and “safety” categories
  • Write down deadlines on your calendar or make a spreadsheet
  • Open college applications and create accounts
  • Turn in a Transcript Request form to Mrs. Hollingsworth in the Counseling Office (for regular deadlines, do this after 1st semester ends)
