College Planning

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS:

You should start applying NOW if you haven’t done so already! Delaying the application process may result in you not getting into the college of your choice. Also you may miss out on some important scholarships.

To apply to many different colleges you can apply online at www.applytexas.org (if you are applying to a Texas public college or university). Applying to more than one university or college will increase your chances of being accepted! There are application fees required for many colleges; however, you may qualify for an exemption. Check with the college you are applying to see if they accept fee waivers and then see me if you qualify.

Some schools require a Secondary School Report. Bring it to me, along with a self-addressed stamped envelope for mailing.  Two stamps are required for appropriate postage.

When requesting an official transcript, please request at least a week in advance when possible. Requests can be made at the counselor’s sign-in table outside the counselor’s office or with the High School secretary. Also, when requesting a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, principal, businesses, etc., give a least a week’s notice and have a print-out of all of your work experience, volunteer work, awards, etc. so that the letter can be specific to you, rather than a generic letter.
