  • How to Apply Through Common App

    *Please note:The Common Application is not required for several colleges including our state schools.  If not required, best practice may be to apply by using the college’s specific application.  Example: Use MU’s application instead of Common Application.

    Go to the Common Application guide for the steps to follow. If you are using the Common Application you will NOT request your transcript on Naviance. Your counselor will submit your transcript through the School Report in the Common Application.

  • Recommendation Letter Requests

    Students needing recommendation letters from their counselor or teachers need to follow the timetable below

    Counselors may request that you complete this Brag Sheet in order to complete your recommendation letter.

    APPLICATION DEADLINE:

    DEADLINE TO REQUEST FROM COUNSELOR/TEACHER:

    October 15

    September 24

    November 1

    October 11

    November 15

    October 25

    December 1

    November 10

    December 15

    November 27

    January 15

    December 11

    February 1

    January 11

    February 15

    January 25

    This schedule allows for vacations/breaks as the counselors and teachers are not in their offices during school breaks. (For example, if your application deadline is Jan. 1st you need to have your request for a recommendation to the counselor at the end of November due to the two weeks of winter break which are not considered work time).           

    If you are late turning in your recommendation request your counselor/teacher will not have as much time to devote to your letter resulting in possibly a less comprehensive letter.  In the case of extreme lateness on the student’s part, the application deadline may be missed altogether.
