Senior year is all about maintaining your grades, the work of taking SAT and ACT tests for the last time, applying to schools, applying for scholarships, awaiting notification and- finally- graduating!
Parents gather tax information for financial aid forms- FAFSA and CSS profile.
File FAFSA and Cal Grant forms after January 1 and ideally before February 1. Some schools award aid on a rolling basis so filing early is worthwhile. The deadline for California public schools is March 2.
Return intent to register forms with deposits to your chosen campus before May 1. (Note: Some colleges require this be done by mail not online so calendar accordingly.) Notify the colleges you are not attending.
Notify MC of any scholarships or grants that you were awarded or received.
Plan summer activities: school, work or community service.
