Decision Day - This is the day most students will need to let colleges know of their decisions for fall 2018.
Your school of choice will need your final transcript. This must be ordered through Parchment. When you choose your destination, look to the right dropdown and choose "HOLD FOR GRADES." Once the final grades are processed, your transcript will be sent according to our school policies.
This is a key year in the college planning process. You’ll be taking standardized tests, narrowing down your college list, and learning about financial aid. In addition, you’ll need to stay involved in your high school courses and activities.
Use days off to visit college campuses—just be sure that they are in session and that you call ahead for a tour.
Help the seniors celebrate their decisions! There's a lot for YOU to do before your Decision Day 2019!
