Senior How-To Guides

Send your SAT scores: You can send your scores for FREE to four colleges each time you register for the SAT. If you are sending AFTER you took the SAT, you will have to login to your Collegeboard account and send it directly to the college. There is a fee to send scores after the test, so we recommend sending them while registering for the SAT.

Request your official transcript for scholarship applications: You will use Naviance to request an official copy of your transcript for scholarship applications or other uses. Make sure you have matched your Common App and Naviance accounts moving forward.

Apply to College: All students will be using Naviance for the college application process.

College Essays: The college essay is a way for you to demonstrate your writing ability as well as an opportunity for you to “tell a story” about you. Make sure you stay on topic. Here are some tips from NACAC and the College Essay Guy.
