College and Career Center: March 10, 2016


C&CC will be closed for spring break. If you need to drop off applications or scholarships, please plan accordingly. Have a fun, safe spring break and see you in fourth quarter!

Senior Reminders

Seniors! Graduation is right around the corner! Here are a few reminders:

  • May 1 is the universal deadline to let schools know whether you are accepting their offer of admission or not. This is not a postmarked deadline.
  • Turn in any scholarship letters that you have received by May 1 to be recognized in the graduation program.
  • Turn in your final transcript request. If you are a scholarship athlete, you also need to send your final grades to the NCAA Clearinghouse.  You can do this now and we will hold your request until final grades are posted.
  • Males 18 years of age must register with Selective Service. Go to for more information. It’s the law!
  • Be sure to turn in your health clearance information (TB test and/or MMR shot record) to the school you will be attending. You will not be able to register for your classes until this is complete.
  • Don’t forget to thank the teachers and counselors who helped you with your college/scholarship recommendations.
  • Still undecided about what to do after graduation?  See Mrs. Yamamoto ASAP!
