Now is the time to complete the FAFSA so you can access federal and state funding to cover higher education expenses.
Your state government offers grants (money that does not have to be paid back) as well as loan options and completing the FAFSA will ensure that your student will receive funding for which the family is eligible. There are deadlines for grant awards, so don’t delay.
It takes only about 30 minutes to complete. Information you will need includes social security numbers for both students and one parent, 2018 tax information (if filed, the tax information can be brought over from the IRS through the Data Retrieval Tool), driver’s license, and a FSA ID used to sign the FAFSA (both the student and one parents needs one).
Seniors: We need your scholarship letters as we are starting to add the money awarded/offered to this year's Senior class.
We need the letters of everything you're offered, whether or not you plan to use the money or attend that college!
You can bring us your original letters, and we'll make a copy while you're here, then give you back your original.
Emails from scholarship committees and colleges awarding/offering you money are great, too. Forward them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

The Lifetime Learning Credit (LLC) is a tax credit used to offset the cost of tuition and related expenses.

Nine out of ten adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18. At smokefreeteen there are many resources for teens who are thinking about quitting tobacco. Teens can access SmokefreeTXT, the quitSTART App, SmokefreeUS on Instagram, or even Speak to an Expert online. Like adults, the more often teens try to quit the more they increase their chances of being successful. Each attempt at quitting helps the smoker learn what strategies work best for them. In addition, the younger and healthier a person is that stops smoking, the faster his/her body will heal from the damaging effects of tobacco.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a form that you need to do starting your senior year and continuing through every year you’re in college. This form determines your eligibility for student financial aid.
The FAFSA should not be confused with the CSS Profile, which is also required by some colleges. The CSS is a fee-based product of the College Board and usually used by colleges to distribute their own institutional funding rather than federal or state.
Nearly every student is eligible for some form of financial aid. Students who may not be eligible for need-based aid may still be eligible for an unsubsidized Stafford Loan regardless of income or circumstances.
A FSA ID can be obtained at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm

Diploma Endorsement info:
Students enrolled in North Carolina high schools will have the opportunity to earn endorsements to their high school diploma that identify a particular area of focused study, beginning with the graduating class of 2014-2015. Please keep in mind that these endorsements have nothing to do with college admissions; they are a high school recognition. The potential endorsements that can be earned in GCS include:
Career Endorsement: the student will complete the Future-Ready core mathematics sequence, as well as a CTE concentration on an approved CTE Cluster, i.e. Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Architecture and Construction; Marketing, Sales, and Service, etc. The student will also earn an unweighted GPA of 2.6 or higher, as well as one industry-recognized credential, i.e. Career Readiness Certificates.
College Endorsement: The student will complete the Future-Ready Core math sequence, as well as a fourth math course that will meet the UNC system minimum admission requirements. A 2.6 GPA is also required.
College/UNC Endorsement: the student will complete the Future-Ready Core math sequence, as well as a fourth math for which Alg II, Math III or Integrated Math III is a prerequisite. The student will also complete three units of science (Biology, Earth/Env Sci, and Chemistry are the three our students will most likely have), as well as two units of a world language. A 2.5 GPA is required.
North Carolina Academic Scholars Endorsement: This one will require the normal four units of English, four maths, three sciences, four social studies and one unit of Health/PE. Additionally, it will require two units of credit in a world language required for the UNC System, as well as four credits from one of the following; Career and Technical Education (CTE), JROTC, Arts Education, World Languages or another subject area. Three higher level courses are also required, i.e. AP IB, Dual or college equivalent course, honors, etc. A 3.5 GPA is required.
Global Languages Endorsement: The student will earn a 2.5 GPA for all of the four English courses that are required for graduation, as well as establish proficiency in one or more languages (in addition to English); most of our students who earn this endorsement will do it by completing four progressive units of a world language and earning a 2.5 or higher in those courses.

I have been handed a link to a great resource that explains all about the ACT and includes:
- a full-length practice ACT test, including the optional writing test
- info about the multiple-choice and writing tests
- test-taking strategies
- what to expect on test day.
You can visit this resource here!
Info. on how to order more official ACT score reports can be found here: https://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/scores/sending-your-scores.html
You might have heard about SAT Subject Tests. They're optional for some schools but not for others. How about you? Do you need them? Check out College Board's comprehensive list and advice (which is to always double-check with the colleges to which you're applying): http://blog.prepscholar.com/complete-list-of-colleges-that-require-sat-subject-tests
To see upcoming test dates and registration deadlines, go here: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/dates-deadline
To practice for the SAT, go to Khan Academy here: https://www.khanacademy.org/sat
Khan is a GREAT website, and I encourage everyone to use it as much as possible. As you work through practice questions, it can actually diagnose what your weak areas are and how to better prepare. This makes the time you put into this site very efficient. I cannot stress how much preparation can boost your score and also help you simply feel better during the test.
Create an account with College Board (if you haven't already) so you can sign up for the SAT, but if you’re doing that now, be sure to keep your username and password written/saved in multiple, safe locations. If you lose any of this information, it’s virtually impossible to get it from the College Board.
You have probably heard about an optional essay part of the SAT. Whether you do the essay portion of the exam or not should depend on whether the colleges to which you're applying require it. I recommend you check directly with the colleges/universities to which you're applying to make certain of this. Meanwhile, here is a list I found that shows schools that recommend, require or don't require the essay portion: http://blog.prepscholar.com/schools-that-require-the-sat-essay
To qualify for a fee waiver, you need to be on free/reduced lunch. You can go to the cafeteria in the mornings and ask a staff member there for a printout of your free/reduced status. Take this printout to me or to Ms. Z. here in the counseling department, and you can get a fee waiver.
The Northeast High School SAT/CEEB code is 342570.
The link to the ACT administration dates for 2019-20 is here: http://www.studypoint.com/ed/act-test-dates/
