Senior Reminders

·        KEEP TRACK OF YOUR COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE LETTERS!!!!! There are several local scholarships that are going to require a copy of your acceptance letters in order to prove that you will be attending college in the fall.

·        When you receive a college acceptance letter, they should have a username and password on them to sign into your college email account. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that you sign into that email account and check it regularly. Colleges will be giving you information regarding enrollment through those college emails. (Especially if you are attending Mineral Area College!!!)

·        Open enrollment for college classes for Fall of 2021 can open very soon so make sure you are keeping track of when those dates are. (I know for sure that Mineral Area College and Jefferson College have enrollment open in the spring (February/March).

·        KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING the college you are going to attend requires for enrollment. Some colleges may require enrollment fees. Some colleges want you to call admissions to set up an appointment with an advisor to schedule classes. It is your responsibility to make sure everything is done in order to attend the college you want to attend.

·        If you need help with anything, please do not hesitate to come into Mrs. Wakefield's office and ask.  

Mrs. Wakefield has test fee waivers for those planning to take the ACT, and who qualify for free and reduced lunches. If you need one of these waivers, please see Mrs. Wakefield.
