Randolph High School will once again be offering John Baylor Test Prep to help prepare for the ACT. In school Johh Baylor Test Prep Sessions will be offered mostly Tuesdays and Thursdays leading up to the October ACT. This will be located in the FCS classroom 3rd and 8th period. If you can excuse yourself from your 3rd or 8th period class, you are welcome to attend. Otherwise, you may study the John Baylor program independently.
Northeast Community College offers the Accuplacer Test
ASVAB will be offered in January
College Application Process:
- Go the the college website and fill out an application.
- Double and triple check your application for errors. Then have someone else check it too.
- You may need be to pay an application fee depending on the college. (By the way: The University of Nebraska College systems has a one time payment of $45. You pay this amount only once - even if you apply to all three colleges.)
- TELL MRS. REIMERS YOU HAVE APPLIED!!! :)
- Sign a request for transcript to be sent form with Mrs. Reimers.
If you get stuck on any step, please come to Mrs. Reimers or comment below and your comment will be sent to Mrs. Reimers in an email.
Results of your ACT are posted on your transcript. However, most colleges request that you have your test results sent directly from ACT.
Note: In order to be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly from Randolph High School to your college.
If you have completed these steps, CONGRATULATIONS! You have applied to college. :)
College Recruiters/College Visits (Polish your handshaking skills!)
I highly encourage you to take advantage of college recruiter visits. Even if you are not really interested in a particular college, the more colleges you are familiar with - the more you may realize what you like and dislike. Upcoming College Recruiter visits will be posted on the bulletin board by the school counseling office.
College visits are HIGHLY recommended! It is extremely helpful to physically be at a college campus in order to know if it is a right fit for you or not. Schedule college visits through college websites and try to schedule for no school days. Please see Mrs. Reimers if you need help! :)
