  • Colleges Combat Senoritis
          For years, high school seniors who have already been accepted to college have let their grades fall, skipped classes, and generally slacked off in school. It's a phenomenon known as "senioritis" and in most cases, it doesn't hurt the students. But that may be changing. The University of Washington last year took away offers of admission from 23 students who had let their grades fall as seniors and sent stern letters to 180 incoming freshmenwarningthem against a repeat of their senior year academic slacking. Many students may not realize theat most college acceptances are, technically, conditional. Schools reserve the right to revoke admissions if they see a significant downturn in senior year grades when they review student transcripts at the end of the school year. UW admissions director Philip Balinger says that few families disputed his office’s decisions. But the school’s timing —some students got the notice in mid-August—left families scrambling for a place at another school. With more than 40,000 students, Washington may be the biggest school to try to combat senioritis on a large scale. The university claims its move has been applauded by educators tired of seniors skipping classes.
          Surf for More! Find out more from the College Board at www.collegeboard.com/student/apply/the-application/8626.html>. Or read Michael London & Stephen Kramer’s “The New Rules of College Admissions” (Fireside, 2006).

  • COMPASS Test (12/3/13)
    Who needs to take the COMPASS Placement Test?
          Students who plan to attend UH Maui College (UHMC) or any community college in Hawaii after graduation or plan on enrolling in *Running Start as a senior, are encouraged to take the COMPASS placement test. Students will not be allowed to register for UHMC classes til they have taken the COMPASS exam.
          COMPASS scores are good for 2 years & will determine if students are able to take college level courses or remedial (high school) courses. Remedial courses take time, energy, & money, & often discourages students from continuing in college & earning a degree.
          Scores can be applied to all community colleges in the UH system, such as Maui or Honolulu Community Colleges, and also to many community colleges on the mainland.
          For more information see CTE Coordinator, Mrs. Emily Haines-Swatek or email her at Emily_Haines@notes.k12.hi.us.

    Financial Aid Night (12/3/13)
    The senior counselor will usually coordinate a Financial Aid Night for senior parents by bringing in guest speakers to help our senior parents complete the FAFSA (Free Applicatoin for Federal Student Aid). Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov. (Website opens the beginning of the new year.)

    FAFSA4caster: Help for Families before Senior Year (11/22/11)
    It's an online tool to help students and families financially prepare and plan for college before a student’s senior year of high school. Called the FAFSA4caster, it provides students with an early estimate of their eligibility for federal financial aid, which could include a Pell grant.

    FAFSA Information
          The FAFSA application is the most important financial aid document there is for college-bound seniors. FAFSA forms will be available in the senior counselor's office. It is crucial for parents of college-bound seniors to get their tax forms completed in January so the FAFSA can be done and sent to the federal government. Even better, the form can be filled out online (www.fafsa.ed.gov) which will guarantee a faster response. If applying for FAFSA online, it will be necessary for one parent and the student to get a pin number, which can be done at this website: www.pin.ed.gov. (12/3/13)

    CLICK HERE for the Pre-Application Worksheet on the internet. Seniors, may register for a PIN number along with one of their parents. You are encouraged to apply electonically.

    Free FAFSA Service
    The government has set up the FAFSA service free. Parents and students complete the form over the Internet or on paper and send it by mail on your own. You do not need pay to have it done.
