SENIORS! Make sure you turn in your FERPA Waiver to Ms. Miller in the Counseling Center. Ferpa Waiver

Class of 2019,

It is time to get started on the college application process!

The counselors will be presenting info on the college application process in your social studies classrooms during the third week of September.. We will cover many topics from transcripts, common application, UW application, teacher letters of rec, Naviance navigation and much more! Don’t miss class that day! We will notify you of the specific dates a week prior.

Starting on September 24th we will begin our individual meetings with seniors (Senior Blitz). This process takes about a week to get through as we have over 400 seniors to talk to and there are only 5 of us doing these meetings RE: College Process! Please be patient as we make time for each of you. Please watch for your appointment time soon. They will be posted on the counseling center window.

On that note, we are excited to announce that we have a 6th counselor joining us at Interlake Ms. Edwards (edwardsca@bsd405.org). She will being having a caseload (which will include seniors), however,  she will not be writing letters of recommendation – as those will be written by the alphabet counselor from the 2017-18 school year.

If you are applying to a private college or university (or a common app public university)? If so, you will likely need some letters of recommendation.

Your school counselor will be writing a letter for the Secondary School Report that is a required portion of most private college applications.

The attached Counselor letters of rec packet covers the process through Naviance, Common Application and the required documents needed for a School Counselor letter of recommendation.

We do ask for teacher feedback forms, a parent brag sheet and a resume.   These need to be in AT LEAST 3 weeks before your earliest deadline… the sooner the better though!  Knock it out early and email it to your counselor.  J  We won’t be available to write letters/submit transcripts over winter break for January deadlines – all forms will need to be in by the end of November.

Your school counselor will go over the process in person with you during your individual Senior Blitz appointment in late September. Please come with your questions ready!
