Graduation Survey for Seniors (Naviance)

Naviance Graduation Survey is REQUIRED after MAY 1ST. (Deadline May 3, 2019)

(Note: Students must complete survey by Friday, May 3rd, in order to be included in the ASG Recognition Rally AND be eligible to receive their graduation tickets.)

May 1st is the National Day of Commitment for college

If you have been accepted to your future college AND have committed AND paid your enrollment deposit:

    • Please make sure you officially decline your other college application offers via the university-specific media (online, email, special form, etc.). This opens up space for other students on the "wait-list". A polite email of thanks to the admissions counselor is also a nice gesture.
    • Please do NOT commit to more than one university by submitting multiple deposits. Sending multiple deposits is dishonest and may result in the withdrawal of admission offers from all institutions. (Exception: Waitlist scenarios.)
    • Please complete your NAVIANCE Graduation Survey (instructions below)
    • Completing this survey is critical so the counselors know where to send your FINAL transcript for college.
    • Remember that if you change your school of choice (because you got accepted off a wait-list, etc.), you MUST update your Survey AND contact the Counseling Office to make sure your transcript is sent to the correct school.

YOU MUST CONTACT COUNSELING OFFICE (805-497-6711) IF YOU CHANGE YOUR SCHOOL OF ATTENDANCE AFTER JUNE 13TH.
