Picking your major or pathway

Get Schooled has some great tools regarding how to choose the right major/pathway for your career goals.


Transcript Requests

Attention Senior Students,

As you are completing your college applications, please make sure to check and see if you need to submit your high school transcript.  Some schools require them at the time of application, some want a transcript that includes your first semester of senior year and some will not want a transcript unless they ask you to send it.  The college or university that you accept enrollment into is going to want a final high school transcript from June of your graduation year. You will need to include a stamped envelope addressed to the school you are applying to or will be attending.  Please write final transcript on the top of the form or first semester at the top of the form if you want them held and mailed in January.  Do not include a return address on the envelope as I will stamp them with the school address.  If you order more than 2 transcripts, the cost per transcript will be 25 cents.

How to get to College

Going to College is an excellent pathway to discover your passion, make lifelong professional and social connections, and learn skills for the workplace.  No matter what your background is or where you want to end up, Higher Education (College) should be a part of that plan. 


Please use the information on this page to explore and plan to make your dreams a reality.



Using Your College Board Fee Waiver

Once you have taken the SAT using a Fee Waiver, you will be able to log into your College Board Account and access your fee waiver forms.  Log into your account --> Go to My SAT ---> You'll see a tab for the Fee Waiver under your score tab and request to send scores tab.


UC Application Fee Waivers: 

When you complete your application, there will be a question about your 2015 family income. The system will then let you know if you qualify for the UC Application Fee Waiver.

If you do NOT qualify for the UC Application Fee Waiver, but have a fee waiver from the College Board, you can apply that to this application.  Select that you will pay the UC fee by check, print out the bill, print out the College Board fee waiver and mail both to the UC Application Center (the address will be on the UC bill).

CSU Application Fee Waivers: 
The California State University application requires a non-refundable, non-transferable fee of $55. California residents who demonstrate financial need may qualify for an application fee waiver.
Students will answer a question about their 2015 family income during the CSU Mentor application.  At that time, they will be notified if they qualify for a fee waiver.
If a student’s request for a fee waiver was not granted at the time they submitted their application, and there is reason to believe they should qualify for the fee waiver, please use printable fee waiver to submit an additional application for the fee waiver.  This waiver will be faxed/emailed directly to the campus they are applying to- see their site for specific fax/email accounts.
At this time, CSU does NOT accept the College Board Application Fee Waivers.

Private, Other State Colleges, Common Application, & Coalition Application
Step 1: Go to the Admissions Page of the College and see if they use the fee waiver
Step 2: Apply, following the directions provided
Step 3: For Common App, your counselor will be prompted to verify your fee waiver status.  In other instances, you may be prompted to enter the fee waiver code, mail in the form that print out, or have your counselor verify your status.

You Can Afford UC!

Most families pay less than the full price of attending UC. In fact, more than half of our undergraduate students pay no tuition at all. Over two-thirds of UC undergraduates receive grants and scholarships, with an average award of around $16,300. But to get financial aid, you need to apply.
