Information for Seniors

Transcripts:

All students should set up an account at www.parchment.com to request their transcripts.  Students will request that transcripts are sent to the colleges where they have applied.  You should not have transcripts sent to your home to be forwarded to the colleges of your choice.  Parchment can also be used to help with your college search.  Transcripts do not include SAT or ACT scores.  You must request that your test scores be sent directly from College Board or ACT.  Students who receive free or reduced lunch can request a transcript fee waiver by emailing Ms. Thorpe after setting up their account.

Testing:

You can register to take the SAT’s and see the upcoming test dates for the 2017-2018 school year at www.collegeboard.org.  If you are interested in taking the ACT’s, you can see the scheduled test dates at www.act.org.  Students who receive free or reduced lunch can request a test fee waiver from Ms. Thorpe.  Students are encouraged to take either the SAT or ACT two times before submitting college applications.

College Applications:

When you apply to any post-secondary institution that requires more than a transcript from Cedar Cliff, you must fill out a College Application Cover Sheet which is available from Mrs. Hoover or Ms. Thorpe.  This is how you communicate to Ms. Thorpe that you have applied and let her know what additional materials you need to have sent to the college. 

 

Who to Contact:

Many people play important roles in your Senior Year.  If you have questions regarding credits, post-secondary plans and graduation you should talk with Ms. Thorpe.  However, there are other people who have information about other things specific to seniors and they are:

Mrs. McKay—Yearbook, Senior Pictures, Baby Pictures for the Yearbook

Mrs. Pines & Mrs. Kutz—Prom, Caps & Gowns, Graduation Announcements, Senior Class Photo

Mr. Cook—Homecoming

NCAA Clearinghouse:

Any student who plans to play Division I or Division II sports in college must register at the NCAA Clearinghouse.  Additionally, you must request to have your transcripts and SAT or ACT scores sent directly to the NCAA Clearinghouse in order to be academically eligible to participate in college.  You can also see a list of all approved Core Courses for Cedar Cliff on their website.
