Attention Seniors!  Need Mid-Year reports sent to colleges?

Many private and out-of-state colleges are now asking for first semester senior grades, also known as "Mid-Year Reports."  If you have applied to a private or out-of-state college on the Common App, your counselor will electronically submit your updated transcript for you.
 
If you have applied to a private or out-of-state school NOT on the Common App, please fill out the mid-year report form in front of Mrs. Willy's desk and provide her a stamp-addressed envelope for each private or out-of-state college that is NOT on the Common App.
 
Remember to check your college portals regularly as they may send you important information and deadlines throughout the remainder of the school year!  See attachment below for example of how to fill out FHS mid-year report form.

Attention All Seniors Applying to Community College!

This is the season to start applying to community college.  Some colleges have an early admission window so students can apply early, get requirements completed ahead of time (like taking placement tests for math and English), meet with a counselor for course guidance, and register earlier.  Las Positas's early admission opened Jan 2nd and will continue through Feb 28th.  Apply now!  Also, there are over 100 community colleges throughout the state of California.  The handout below is a resource for more information about benefits of community college, how to search for community colleges throughout the state, financial aid, majors, and transfer programs to UC, CSU, as well as private and out-of-state colleges.
