 Naviance Access

https://docs.google.com/docume...

Check the Naviance college visit calendar daily to see which colleges are visiting FHS. Most of the time, the representatives that visit are the same people who are reading student applications. Making contact is super important to demonstrate interest in the college. Determine if you will apply Early Decision (ED). Discuss the ramifications of this decision with your parent and counselor. Remember you can only apply to one ED school.  Work on college applications and observe all deadlines. For students attending the U of A - housing contracts open mid-September. Early completion of this phase of the housing contract process will guarantee that students are at the top of the list for choosing a residence hall room (this is Phase I of 4 phases for housing). Students will need to be prepared to submit a deposit of $200 to hold their place in the housing “line”. Look over your transcript and ensure all of your classes and grades are accurate. Did you take classes at a junior high school that counted for high school credit? Are they on your transcript? Make sure your GPA is accurate by using our GPA calculator. Go to Fayetteville High School>Student Resources>GPA Calculation. Notify the counselor if you have any errors that need to be corrected.
