Every credit counts!!! 

Meet with your School Counselor to go over your high school credits and transcript!

There are many tutoring services available at AHA.

If you happen to fail a class, make sure you talk to your School Counselor to register for a Credit Recovery Class.

Resources

The Common Application is an admissions application that you complete and can then submit to over 700 colleges and universities across the country!

ACT/SAT scores are very important, not only for college admittance but also for course placement in college.

Letter of Recommendation Request Form

For most scholarships/admission applications, you may need a letter of recommendation from a principal, teacher, school counselor, employer or someone who knows you well. Fill out this request form so they will know useful information about you in order to write an exceptional letter of recommendation. PLEASE ASK THEM TO WRITE THE LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION AT LEAST 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE DUE DATE. I also suggest you give your recommender an unofficial transcript and a resume.

AHA Junior Timeline

The Junior's Guide to Planning for College

  • By the end of your junior year, you should have 3-5 colleges/universities that you are interested in applying to.
  • Know what requirements are needed for those colleges/universities (GPA, ACT or SAT scores, Letter of Recommendations, etc.)
  • Please know all the deadlines that will happen during your SENIOR YEAR!!!! Admission Applications and Scholarship deadlines occur very early during your Senior Year!!! Ex. Arizona State University's VIP Admission is due on November 1st of your Senior Year…this means you have to apply, be accepted, and all documents (i.e. official transcript, test scores) would be sent there by November 1st…

In other words…DON'T PROCRASTINATE.
