UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA UPDATE
Effective for fall semester 2015 admission and later, four years of math will be required for admission to the University of Minnesota's Twin Cities, Duluth, Morris, and Rochester campuses.  This requirement goes into effect for current juniors who plan to apply for admission this coming fall.

NARROWING YOUR OPTIONS UPDATE
Please note that NYO appointments are currently being scheduled for June.  Once a College Planning Worksheet is returned to the CCC, we will call the phone number listed to schedule the appointment in the order it is received.

SEVENTH SEMESTER TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS
Calling all Seniors!  Now is the time to request 7th semester [or mid-year] transcripts from Parchment.

If you filed the Common Application, you do not need to do anything to have your mid-year transcript sent to your college[s].  Your counselor will send a transcript to Common Application on your behalf.

In the fall, if you sent your transcript use Parchment [non-Common Application], you need to now request a mid-year transcript be sent to any college who has requested one.  To request your 7th semester transcript, go to www.parchment.com and order a "current transcript."  All requests received will contain 7th semester grades; SHS will begin processing these requests on January 31st.

We urge you to request your mid-year transcript as soon as possible in order to meet many schools' early February 1 deadlines.

If you have any questions, please see your counselor, a college counselor in the College/Career Center, or Mrs. Micheli in Room 2414.

NARROWING YOUR OPTIONS MEETING UPDATE
All Junior Parents should have received a message from the College/Career Center.  We have just discovered that our December mailing to you about our "Narrowing Your Options" program that invites you to schedule an individual college counseling appointment with one of the SHS college counselors has been lost in transit. 

Our first available appointment is January 28th.  A copy of the the letter mailed home to Junior families can be accessed here.  In order to schedule your appointment, please access the College Planning Worksheet before we finalize an appointment date.  A completed College Planning Worksheet can be e-mailed to Mrs. Hedberg at rhedberg@d125.org.

Special Education families can also access the mailed letter from Special Education Transition Counselor Ms. Sullivan here.
