• WPHS Senior College Application Checklist 

      

    • My schedule contains all the classes needed for graduation (including Economics & Government) & a PE class.    

     

    • I have submitted my “Student Self- Reflection Form for Counselor” 

     

    • My parent/guardian has submitted a “Parent Brag Letter.” 

     

    • I have asked 2 teachers to write a letter of recommendation on my behalf.  

     

    • I am able to access my Naviance account. 

     

    • I am signing up via Naviance with colleges visiting WPHS that I am interested in.  

     

    • I have logged into the Common Application website and created an account. I have written down my password and know where it is. My CA Account name exactly matches my legal name and the name on my transcript.   (Note: A CA account is only needed if you plan to apply to colleges using the CA.)   

     

    • I have read and completed the FERPA information on the CA, (after I have completed the Education section and loaded at least one school to my application).  

     

    • I remembered NOT to add my WPHS teacher’s names or counselor under “Recommenders” on the CA. (This area should be used for adding someone outside of school, i.e. your pastor, your boss) 

     

    • I have sent an e-mail reminder to the teachers who have agreed to write for me. 

     

    • I have submitted a Transcript Request in Naviance  (under colleges I’m applying) for each college that I am applying to. 

     

    • I have gone into Naviance and under “Colleges I’m Applying to,” I’ve indicated if I am applying ED, EA or Regular Decision. There are no question marks noted in the column that asks, “How are you applying?”  If I end up not applying to any of these schools, I will let the Counseling Center know so that they can be deleted from the list of schools I’m applying to in Naviance.) 

     

    • I have gone into “Letters of Recommendation” in my College tab in Naviance and used the drop down menu to select the teacher(s) who have agreed to write a letter for me. I then must select that the letter be sent to “All Applications” that I have requested transcripts for. 

     

    • My name on the transcript exactly matches my name on the CA/SAT/ACT.  I know that if I drop or add a class, my transcript will be updated and sent to any school that I have previously applied to. 

     

    • If I plan to apply to a school Early Decision, I have notified my counselor.  

     

    • I have logged into the College Board and/or ACT and have requested and paid for my SAT and/or ACT scores be sent to the schools I am applying to. (The Counseling Center DOES NOT send your scores to any colleges that you apply to.)  

     

    • I know that my mid-year grades are sent to all schools that I have requested transcripts be sent to.  (I have advised the Counseling Center of the schools that I DID NOT apply to, in order for my transcript request be removed.)
