Counselors presented college application information to seniors in their English classes on Friday, September 15th. Students received the Scripps Ranch High School College Application Guide which includes information about the process for ordering transcripts, requesting letters of recommendation, tips for completing the different types of applications, and much more. Students also received an unofficial copy of their transcript that must be used for completing college applications. It is important they do not lose this copy! Please encourage them to take a picture of the transcript and email it to themselves. They also received a blank credit check form to use with their transcript to confirm they are on track for graduation.
*Senior College Presentation for parents is September 28th at 4:00 P.M. in the theater. This presentation is to assist with the process of choosing colleges and completing college applications. Please review the College Application Guide prior to coming so we can clarify anything you may not understand.
