Seniors reminded to follow up with colleges
As Herkimer students look ahead to post-graduation plans, the guidance office is there to help.
Counselors are meeting with juniors during March to select senior courses, and discuss post-high school plans. Each student will receive a folder with information to help with the process, and a letter will be sent home summarizing each meeting.
Parents of juniors are invited to a parents’ night at 6 p.m. Monday, March 27, to review the process and procedures.
Juniors will also receive their ASVAB scores this month, and are encouraged to visit colleges during this time of year and to sign up to take the SAT and ACT. Students taking the SAT can register online at the College Board website. Deadlines are as follows:
- May 6 test: deadline April 7
- June 3 test: deadline May 9
The SAT will also be given March 11, but the registration deadline has passed.
The registration deadline for the June 10 ACT is May 5. Register online at www.actstudent.org
Seniors are reminded to follow up with colleges and complete any additional documentation needed, including acceptance paperwork, financial aid forms, financial aid acceptance, housing forms and any other documents required.
Seniors can find information about scholarship opportunities on the Guidance Office’s Scholarships page.
