MONTHLY PLANNER  . . . for the Rest of Your High School Life

By Dr. Randall Hanson, www.collegeoutlook.net

 

OCTOBER

**Finalize your list of college choices to a reasonable number, ideally with one or more “stretch” schools

and one “safety” school

**Create a file for each of your college choices — and keep all materials organized

**Consider creating a master schedule of all your application deadlines

**Begin working on drafts of your college essays

**Start working on college applications

**Stay focused on your grades



 

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WHEN YOU ARE COMPLETING APPLICATIONS YOU NEED TO DO SO FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That will be your first year in college!

 

 

A COMPLETE ADMISSIONS FILE . . .

 

Remember, to finalize your application for admission to a college or university, you must have completed the following steps:

 

Submitted an application for admission

Paid the admission fee, if there is one

Requested that we send your high school transcript, including test scores, and your senior year schedule

 

As you are finalizing and applying for college admissions for next year, don’t forget that a campus visit is an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT step in the process.  Most campus visits can be arranged on college web sites, by calling the college admissions office.

 

CAMPUS VISIT CHECKLIST:

Meet with an admissions counselor—take an unofficial copy of your transcript with you

Verify admission requirements

Discuss your chances for graduation success and job placement

Meet with the financial aid office to determine actual college costs

Ask about available scholarships and financial aid

Take a campus tour

Investigate your academic program

Attend a class or at least meet with a professor in your department of interest

Talk with both students on campus and faculty

Visit the residential halls

Eat in the campus cafeteria

Investigate the activities available on campus for students

Visit with coaches if playing sports is one of your interests

Spend some time in the town

***************************************************************************************

 

NARROW YOUR SCHOOL CHOICES

You’re identifying what you want in a school, completing your college search, and discovering that you have several potential schools on your list!  How do you narrow it down to a manageable number?

**Compare the pros and cons of each school; this will help you organize your thinking

**Group school choices by your chance of being admitted:

            Dream Schools:  schools that represent a challenge by cost, admission requirements, or both

            Mid-range Schools:  schools you’re likely to get accepted to

            Safety Schools:  schools you’re sure to be admitted and you know you can afford

**Make your final list:  include schools from each category and rank them by preference. 

This method helps you have a manageable number of schools to continue considering throughout this school year!  Good luck!  Article taken from the Fall 2007 edition of Knowledge for College

 

 

FOUR TIPS TO WARD OFF SENIORITIS:

 

  1.  Make the grades.  There is no stronger message to send to colleges than good grades during senior year.  Students should aim to maintain or improve their performance compared to junior year.  Strong grades in a challenging senior schedule can often compensate for weaker marks earned previously.

 

  1. Remain involved without getting overwhelmed.  As we all know, students are dedicated to much more than classes.  Senior year provides a whole new level of learning how to prioritize academic demands with the commitments that clubs require.  Trying new activities and further developing current interests not only prepares students for a college schedule, but gives them an important stress-relieving outlet.  However, involvement at the expense of one’s grades is never a worthwhile trade-off.

 

  1. Stay focused.  Even after being admitted to college, seniors need to maintain their grades.  Students who commit to Early Action or Early Decision programs are expected to continue their academic progress.  Colleges wish to see solid final transcripts.  It gives no college pleasure to send a warning letter or, the worst-case scenario, to rescind admission to students who let their grades slide at the end of senior year.

 

  1. Enjoy the experience.  Students who can resist “senioritis” will be able to balance the academic, extracurricular, and social aspects of senior year. 

 

These tips were taken from the Fall 2009 Counselor’s Canvas, a newsletter from

Washington University in St. Louis.

RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Here is a new guide to resources for students with disabilities.  Check it out at http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/resources-for-students-with-disabilities/.  There is also a guide focused entirely on financial aid for students with disabilities.  This guide details scholarships, grants, and other methods students can use to fund their educations.  Check it out at http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/affordable-colleges-for-students-with-disabilities/

***************************************************************************************

 

It is FAFSA time!  The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

 

By submitting the FAFSA, you will find out if you qualify for the Pell Grant, work study, and/or student/parent loans from the federal government.  If you do need a loan for college, the interest rate for loans garnered through the FAFSA are much lower than if you got a loan at a bank.

 

You can submit the FAFSA any time after October 1st!  You can print the FAFSA, a 10-page document and mail it in, but that will slow the process a little bit.  OR, you can print the FAFSA worksheet and complete it.  Then, go to www.fafsa.gov and complete the FAFSA on the Web.  Doing so will expedite getting your results.  If you submit the FAFSA electronically, you will need a FSA ID number.  The student needs a FSA ID and one parent needs a FSA ID.  You can register for one at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid.  FSA stands for Federal Student Aid.

 

Males can also register with Selective Services through the FAFSA.  There is a question on it asking the student if he wants the government to register him when he turns 18.  Marking “yes” will get it taken care of for you!  Males who do not register with Selective Services will not receive federal financial aid.  You can also register at https://www.sss.gov/Home/registration.

***************************************************************************************

 

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a necessary document for most colleges to receive as they begin to finalize their financial aid and scholarship packages for you.  This document is also necessary for the federal government to decide whether you qualify for GRANT money, WORK STUDY, and/or STUDENT/PARENT LOANS

 

Items you and your parents need to fill out the FAFSA paperwork:

 

**  Social Security numbers

**  Driver’s license numbers

**  W-2 forms

**  Federal income tax returns

**  Current bank statements and records of stocks, bonds, and other investments

**  Records of other untaxed income received  -  for example, Social Security, Temporary

            Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veteran’s benefits

**  Business or farm records

 

 

Steps to Preparing for the FAFSA:

 

**  Get a FSA ID number  -  to sign your FAFSA electronically. 

You and one of your parents need to apply for a FSA ID number at

https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid.

**  Complete a Pre-Application Worksheet  if submitting the FAFSA online  - 

One will be uploaded to the Senior Scoop section of the BHS web site

**  Complete the paper FAFSA if mailing it in (It will take longer to get results than submitting it online).

            One will be uploaded to the Senior Scoop section of the BHS web site

**  Complete and submit the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1st at www.fafsa.gov.

**  If you accidentally get on a site that wants to charge you for filing the FAFSA, you are being scammed; it

doesn’t cost to submit the FAFSA!!  Make sure you are on the government site!
