Note to College – Bound Students

  • Discuss college with your counselor. Borrow college catalogs from the College & Career Center - Room 102. Use the "Scholarships & More" link under the WHS Student tab for up to date information on colleges and universities.
  • Attend meetings at school with college representatives. Be familiar with required admission tests, financial aid, scholarships and application procedures.
  • Visiting colleges is the best way to learn about that institution and their offerings.
  • Visit the webpages of colleges for applications for admission, scholarship and housing information.  All information can be found on the institution’s website.
  • To apply for scholarships or financial aid, see your school counselor in August of your senior year or earlier.  Make sure to utilize the FASTWeb for more information.
  • To attend an out-of-state institution, secure information for admission requirements early in your high school career. This improves your chance of being accepted at the college of your choice. If interested in attending an out-of-state college or university, you should follow the requirements stated in the catalog of the school you plan to attend.
