1 RBHS Senior College Night Presentation

2  Do you have all of the A-G requirements met?  No “D’s” allowed!  Opportunities at Shasta College to get back on track ☺  Do you have a SAT or ACT test taken?  Have you released your scores to the specific campuses where you are applying?

3 SAT : Test Date Regular Reg. Late Reg.  Nov. 3Oct. 4 Oct. 19  Dec. 1 Nov. 1 Nov. 16 ACT:  Dec. 8 Nov. 2 Nov.16  November scores are usually the latest possible scores at most universities! Check your university's website!

4  Determine how long you want to be in college. Does you career require a AA/AS, BA/BS, Masters, PhD, M.D.?  Research required classes for a major @  Research job descriptions and wages, or

5  Apply online, take English & math placement tests, request final transcript from SHS be sent to Shasta College, attend orientation, and meet with a Shasta College counselor = You’re in!  IGETC plan @ SC prepares students for CSU transfer  SC has TAG programs with all UC campuses EXCEPT Berkeley & UCLA.  Reciprocity agreements with OIT & Southern Oregon Univ.

6  If you have already taken a class at Shasta during high school, do not re-apply. Call admissions and update your status.  Need to select an intended major or program of study(do not select undecided if you hope to receive financial aid)  Need to select an educational goal (AA, certificate, transfer)

7 If you are truly undecided and planning on attending Shasta:  For your intended major select CSU General Ed or IGETC  For your educational goal select associate degree and transfer to a 4 year (You may change your mind later and adjust as necessary)

8  Please make sure that your student is enrolled at RBHS under their legal name (name on the birth certificate).  Use your legal name on all college applications and FAFSA form.  If not, your student is in danger of jeopardizing their ability to access financial aid.

9  Do not proceed with the thought of enrolling for one year @ Shasta College then transfer to a UC or CSU. That is called a lower division transfer and no longer a possibility.  Transferring from Shasta requires 60 units which is two years of education! Once you are a transfer student your high school record is no longer reviewed. No SAT or ACT for transfer students!  If considering Shasta College for transfer follow the IGETC curriculum AND the AA-T or AS-T road map for your specific CSU campus and major! Students should also use to find Shasta College’s transferrable courses for their specific campus and major!

10  The AA-T or AS-T is a new joint transfer program and is the best route for students to transfer between CCC and CSU. Complete the prescribed 60 units at a CCC then complete the required 60 units at the CSU to earn the bachelor’s degree.  Two links for further information:

11  A 4-year degree is more like a 6 year degree at many California Universities.  It may be less expensive for our students to attend a university out of state. Some of them guarantee graduation in 4 years!  Private universities may not be more expensive than public universities!  Look into the WUE grant at out of state universities.

12  Does the college offer your major OR the 3 different majors you are considering?  Can you and your parents afford that college? Is attending that college worth taking out a student loan?  Are athletics important to you?  What types of housing does the college offer?  Location…. Big city, beach, snow boarding, culture  Distance from home (Believe it or not you will want to come home ☺ )  MAKE A COLLEGE VISIT… There is still time….
