COLLEGE VISITS: 

  • Although we'd like seniors to schedule a college visit on a day FHS doesn't have school, seniors are allotted 2 on-campus college visits.  Students should set up the visit with the college, pick up a 'College Visit' form from the main office and turn the form in 1 week before the visit.
  • In-school visits take place at 9:00 during Advisory. Students should sign up for visits on Naviance then students will be called to the Media Center.

 

APPLYING TO COLLEGE:

  • Students should begin applying to college(s) beginning in August of his/her senior year. Students can apply via the Common App or Direct to the Institution (through the college's website). 
  • The counselors would like for any student interested in attending college after high school to please apply by Thanksgiving of his/her senior year.  Seniors should make sure he/she is paying attention to deadlines!! 

 

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION (LOR):

  • Not all schools require a LOR in order to apply. For those schools that do require a LOR, seniors should make sure they talk to his/her teacher before sending the teacher the electronic LOR request!  Give the teachers 2 weeks notice prior to that college's deadline. 
  • Also, if seniors are applying via the Common App, the counselors must write a LOR. Please give them 2 weeks notice as well.
  • All seniors must fill out a Brag Sheet to help school staff write the glowing LOR that you deserve. Students have been asked to fill out their Brag Sheet on Naviance. 

 

REQUESTING TRANSCRIPTS:

  • AFTER a student has applied to a college, he/she needs to request the transcript be sent to the college via Naviance.
