16 What do we need to do now?

17  STUDENT: 1. Apply to colleges via the college websites OR the Common Application  MAKE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL SUPPLEMENTAL FORMS SPECIFIC TO THE COLLEGE AND THE SIGNATURE PAGE OR YOUR APPLICATION WILL NOT BE SUBMITTED 2. Input information into Naviance account 3. Provide counselor with Transcript Request Form 4. Continue to update information in Naviance 5. Be sure to check your Naviance account regularly for submission status  COUNSELOR: 1. Send HS info (i.e. transcript, recs, forms, etc.) to colleges via Naviance

18 How does your counselor know when you have applied & materials need to be prepared & sent out?

19  Once you have submitted your college applications, you must submit a hard copy of the Transcript Request form to the Counseling Office  This form lets your counselor know that you HAVE APPLIED to college(s) and now are ready to have documents sent from HHS  WATCH DEADLINES!! The counselors still need time to do their part.

20  Found in the document library  Up to 5 schools can be listed on one form

21  Step 1: ASK your teacher in person if he/she is willing to write you a positive letter of recommendation  Step 2: if he/she agrees, provide them with the personal information sheet (found in document library in Naviance) or other form they may require  Step 3: request the recommendation electronically YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS STEP IN ORDER FOR REC TO BE UPLOADED AND SENT OUT with other materials from HHS!!  Step 4: BE SURE TO THANK YOUR TEACHER!!!

22  In the “colleges” tab under “colleges I’m applying to” find “teacher recommendations” and click on “add/cancel requests”  Select the name(s) of teacher(s) and add personal note  Be sure to click on “update requests”

23  Provide your counselor with the Parent Brag Sheet and the Personal Anecdotal forms (these are available in the document library)  Electronically request this recommendation – same process as with teachers (counselors are in list)  Allow at least 3 weeks for your counselor to write the rec and prepare forms  Recommendation will be sent electronically with other documents

24  We do NOT have a means to electronically send your resume out for you to colleges  If you wish to have your resume included with your application, YOU must submit it to the college yourself  Keep in mind that a resume is a helpful tool for anyone writing a recommendation for you

25 What do I do if a college does not accept electronic applications & high school documents through Naviance/EDocs?

26 You will still log college information into family connection. You will still submit the required hard copy of the transcript request form printed off of the family connections site. You will attach the transcript request form to a large manila envelope addressed to the college w/ four stamps and include a smaller legal sized envelope addressed to the college with one stamp.

27  Apply by Thanksgiving  The earlier the better!!  Allow AT LEAST 3 WEEKS in guidance/records to write recs, prepare forms and send out materials BE AWARE OF APPLICATION DEADLINES!!!
