College Applications

 
 

Seniors:  Early application deadline for Penn State is November 1, 2018. Seniors wanting an admissions decision by December 24, 2018 must have their completed application turned in by this deadline.

 
 
COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

The Guidance office requests that students follow certain procedures when sending college applications:

1.  Obtain applications from the college, the internet or from the file in the guidance office.  Addresses are available in the guidance office and/or from the CHOICES software in the computer lab and the guidance office.

2.  Complete the application, transcript release form (see "Guidance Forms" page to left), references and essays (if required) and bring the entire application package to the guidance office with applicable fees and postage.  Applications should be turned in one week before the requested mailing date.  Counselors will review the application, include official transcripts and send out the application.  Official transcripts must be mailed directly from the guidance office. 

3.  If you choose to complete your application on-line, be sure to request a transcript from the guidance office.  We must have a signed transcript release form (see "Guidance Forms" page to left) before we can mail the transcript.  If the on-line application has a counselor page, print it out and bring it into the guidance office.

4.  If a reference letter is required from a teacher, students should provide the teacher with a stamped, addressed envelope.  Be sure to allow the teacher adequate time.  It is very helpful to provide a resume for the teacher and this will result in a more complete reference.

 

ADMISSION TESTS

Students who plan to apply to a four year college and certain programs at two year colleges will need to submit admission test results.  Students may take the SAT exam at POSHS in October and March of each year and on additional dates at other schools.    Registration forms are available in the guidance office or online at www.collegeboard.com.  ACT exams may be taken in Altoona or Clearfield.  Students may register at www.actstudent.org.

COLLEGE VISITS

Students are encouraged to visit prospective colleges.  If they wish to visit during the school day, they should turn in an excuse from a parent prior to the day of the trip.  They should also contact the admissions office of the college and make an appointment to visit.  When they return to school, an acknowledgement from the college should be submitted to the attendance office.

STUDENT ATHLETES

Students who plan to play Division I or Division II sports in college must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse.  This registration must be done on line at www.ncaaclearinghouse.org.  This website also provides prospective athletes with a guide book that contains some very important information about required academic courses, test requirements and grade point average requirements.  We recommend students apply at the beginning of their senior year.

MILITARY CAREERS

Students who are interested in the military should sign up for the ASVAB exam.  It is administered at POSHS each fall or may be taken at a later date arranged by a recruiter.  Recruiters visit the high school to meet with interested students. 

Students interested in an appointment to a military academy or in ROTC should begin the procedure early in their senior year.
