SUBMITTING YOUR COLLEGE PAPERWORK TO THE
SCHOOL COUNSELING OFFICE
Ø Make an appointment with your counselor to deliver your paperwork.
Ø Fill out the paperwork completely, sign and have your parent sign all of the designated places.
Ø Include an envelope addressed to the college.
Ø Include your check made payable to the college for the application fee if you did not pay online.
Ø Bring the counselor’s copy of the recommendation form and the secondary school report form.
Ø Include letters of recommendation from teachers if you plan to have them sent. Inform your counselor of all teachers from whom you have requested a recommendation.
Ø Include the $2.00 transcript fee for each application. This fee covers sending the initial transcript as well as a final transcript to the college that you choose to attend. Your paperwork will not be accepted without the transcript fee.
Ø Look for the notification slip from the School Counseling Office, which verifies where and when the paperwork was mailed. If you do not get this slip, check with the School Counseling Office to be sure that your paperwork was mailed.
Ø Request a Transcript Request Form if you need the Registrar to send only your transcript to a scholarship program. Students who submit applications on-line still need to have a transcript sent from the School Counseling Office. Remember to include the $2.00 transcript fee. Verbal requests to send a transcript will not be accepted.
Ø Dual Enrollment Students: Request a transcript from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College in order to have your college credit transferred to your college.
Ø Submit your necessary documents two weeks before the due date to ensure that adequate time is allowed for the counselor to complete their part of your application. Please refer to the application deadlines on the College Application Checklist.
TIPS TO REMEMBER:
Ø Always follow the steps listed above.
Ø Your documents must be given to your Counselor two weeks before it is due to ensure enough time to complete the application process in the School Counseling Office.
