Seniors, 

 

Don't forget that the CSU and UC applications are due November 30, 2016! 

 

Fee Waivers:

- CSU: You must qualify for the CSU app fee waivers, located at the end of the CSU application. The fee waiver is determined by the number of persons living at your household (including yourself), and the total yearly income of your family.

- UC: You may use either the fee waiver at the end of the UC application, or the four (4) college fee waivers from College Board (on your College Board account/log-in).

- Private Universities: Located at the end of the application. Apply for private universities either through Common App website, or on the actual college's website. 

 

Test Scores: 

- The final test date that colleges will accept for Fall 2017 admission is in December 2016 (yes, even if most apps are due on November 30). 

- REMEMBER to send your score reports ASAP. The score reports are free up to a certain date/time after your most recent scores are released. Past that date, score reports range from $11 to $12 per score report.

- For SAT: Use code 3594 to send SAT scores to all CSU campuses. For UC, if you send a score report to one (1) UC, all UC campuses will receive it (because the UC system connects all UC campuses).

 

COLLEGE CENTER C-11 STAFF/PERSONNEL WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE DURING THANKSGIVING BREAK (11/19/16 THROUGH 11/27/16) TO HELP WITH COLLEGE APPLICATIONS!!!
