March Need to Know for Seniors


  • Finish with a strong academic record! (No D’s or F’s for 4-year colleges!!)
  • Update Family Connection if you added more schools that were not on the original “pink” form.
  • Update Family Connection with Acceptances, Deferrals, or Denials.
  • Turn in Acceptance letters and Scholarship Awards.
  • Check your portals and college emails weekly!!
  • Double check that your schools have received your SAT/ACTs (this should be on the portals).
  • Keep watch on Schoology for weekly scholarship opportunities.
  • Check housing/dorm application deadlines (some schools do not guarantee housing-first come, first served.)
  • If you have not submitted the FAFSA (or CSS Profile for schools that require this) do so ASAP-even if you are applying to a community college.
  • Los Rios Community College online registration opens May 14.
  • Remember, you do not have to commit to a college or university until May 1.
