College App Series for Juniors: This week College Essays

If you’ve never been on Naviance, or don’t even know how to log in, here’s your chance! Seniors must use Naviance to apply to most of their schools and many scholarships as well, so now is a great time to learn. It is also a great tool for researching careers, majors, and colleges. Invest in learning how to take advantage of this tool now.                                               
Thursday, April 1, at 2:30 during Student Support

 

Upcoming Virtual College Fairs

 

MID-YEAR Transcripts:  IF the college you have applied to is requesting you to send mid-year or 7th semester transcripts, be sure to make that request in Naviance.  Mid-year transcripts will include fall semester grades, so will be sent to the colleges you have requested after January 13, 2021.    To make this request, log into Naviance, and choose "Colleges I'm applying to" and click "Manage Transcripts".  Under your list of schools, you will need to select the "Request Midyear" button to request your transcript to be sent.  This year we anticipate more schools might request them, but schools will let you know—check your college portal accounts and your emails!  Transcript questions?  Reach out to Mrs. Ramponi, jramponi@srvusd.net.
