Starting in September counselors like to meet with all seniors to have a senior conference and start discussing progress towards graduation and plans for after graduation. Seniors will receive a slip with their scheduled conference time. The conference will last approximately 45 minutes and should take place during a study period. We look forward to meeting with seniors.

  • Your counselor will update your email address and your parent/guardian email on Naviance.
  • Schedule visits with the colleges you are considering.  It is important to make that personal contact!  Check out the visit schedule on Naviance to see when college reps are coming to Eaglecrest for a visit.  If a rep is coming from a college you are considering, we highly advise that you come to the visit and touch base with them.  These may be the individuals who read your application.
  • Fill out the Senior Letter of Recommendation Form. The form can be found on Naviance. You answer the questions (please be specific) and give a copy to the individuals that you would like to write your letters of rec.  Not all colleges ask for letters. If they do, we suggest two letters of recommendation; be sure to have one from a core subject teacher.  Give your teachers plenty of time to write your letter!
  •  Email: Establish an appropriate email to communicate with colleges.
  •  Put thought into your essays!  Most colleges will require an essay/personal statement for admission and scholarship. You are encouraged to work closely with an English teacher to write this.  Make sure you proofread and follow directions.
  • Applications: BE AWARE OF THE APPLICATION DEADLINES!!  Give yourself plenty of time to complete the application and anything that goes along with it, such as an essay, letters of recommendation, etc.   
    •  REMEMBER: Early Decision applications are binding, this means that if you are accepted, you MUST attend that school and can no longer apply to any other college. “Early Actionlets you hear a decision earlier, but is not binding
    • Common Application: Over 400 schools use the common app. Pay attention to supplemental forms if you use the common app.
  •  Transcripts: Every college you apply to will need an official transcript from Eaglecrest.  These transcripts cost $5 each and you will order them in the College & Career center.
    • Allow for 5 days from when you order your transcript to when it is mailed out. So again, watch those deadlines! Allow additional time around holidays
    •   You must send test scores directly from ACT/SAT.
  •   How are you going to pay for college? Register with Fastweb, a large scholarship search engine (www.fastweb.com). Also, use the National Scholarship Search on Naviance under the “Colleges” tab. Other great resources are www.ManagingCollegeCosts.Com and www.Fafsa4Caster.ed.gov.
  •  Apply for the College Opportunity Fund!  This is located at the College In Colorado website; the link can also be found on your Naviance page www.collegeincolorado.com.
  • The FAFSA form is the application for federal student aid.  This will determine your eligibility for student loans, student grants and work-study.  You and your parents will fill this out after your family has received their W2’s for 2012 taxes, so sometime after January 1, 2013.  The application is located online at www.fafsa.ed.gov; the link can also be found on your Naviance page.
  •  Net Cost Estimator: Allows prospective students to calculate an estimated net price (out-of-pocket cost) of enrollment at an institution. Each school as an Estimator. Only Estimates!!
