Apply Early
Going to College – Once you have chosen your first choice - apply
early. You can only apply to one college using early admissions and
you are committing to that college so make sure you are happy with
your choice.


Going to a Tech School – They have a limited number of seats.
Usually their programs are very hands on and only accept a small
number of students. If you want one of the spots, you should not
wait.


Looking for a job – Most jobs have deadlines for applications.
Don’t wait until that last minute to submit your application. It
doesn’t look good if you are running in a few seconds before the
deadline.

Acceptance or Denial
Most colleges will notify perspective students by April
15th if they have been accepted or denied. It is important
when choosing colleges that you pick one school that
you know you will be accepted.



Most employers will notify you within two weeks if
they have decided to hire you or not. You can ask
them to notify you even if you are not going to be
hired. They might send you an e-mail or letter.
Remember to be polite. There might not be a spot for
you now, but you never know what might open up in
the future.
Notification of Acceptance
Most colleges will want a commitment by May 1st. It is important
to make your decisions as quickly as possible especially if you
are wanting on-campus housing. Sometimes campus housing is
limited and you need to submit deposits to ensure a spot.


When you are offered a job…
You might choose to accept on the spot or you might ask the
employer if you can have a couple of days to think about the
decision. Don’t take too long, but make sure you have thought
through how the job will impact you.




                                           Interested in being a performer?

                                                  might look like this.
Request Final Transcript

The registrar’s office will send out a form for you to fill out at the end
of the year. We will need to know what you have decided for your
post high school plans and where your final transcript should be sent.



 You should check with your employer to see if there are any
 opportunities for a raise when you have graduated.
