College Application Season Opens


Madison counselors will conduct presentations about the college application process during the College-bound Symposium on October 11. Students will receive a packet of information to complete the college application process and prepare for the financial aid season, which now opens in October (the deadline for the FAFSA [Free Application for Federal Student Aid] is March 2, 2018. NOTE: Apply for the 2018-19 school year at www.fafsa.gov. The counselors will hold after school workshops on November 7, 9, 15, 16, 28 or 29, 2:30-3:30 pm, in room 1003 to provide assistance. The application deadline for the University of California and California State University systems is Wednesday, November 30. This is a hard deadline for fall enrollment. Students are encouraged to complete all applications by November 17 to ensure counselor help. Our goal is to assist our students in preparing for college, so it is imperative that our 12th grade students seek assistance in meeting deadlines and developing good study habits, strategies and techniques. Please contact your student’s counselor if you have questions or need assistance.
