Midterm Plan linked here.

Request to submit Mid-year grades

Seniors, use this link to submit a request to have your school counselor send your mid-year grades to your requested colleges. Please note that with Common App's new policy, if you are requesting a mid-year grade report to be sent to a Common App school, that mid-year grade report will be automatically sent to all of your Common App colleges. All records after February 9, 2022 will automatically include your mid-year grades.

Request to Submit Mid-Year Grades

Reminder for all seniors who applied to Temple University!

Temple utilizes a self-report transcript tool that allows students to input their high school courses and grade information themselves.* Please note that all students are required to submit a self-reported high school transcript, and that sending an official transcript does not instead meet this requirement. The sooner this step is completed, the sooner Temple can start to review students for admission, scholarships and their Honors Program. Students who miss this critical step may miss out on merit scholarship consideration.

Once students have submitted their Common Application, they will receive an email to activate a TUportal account to complete this step. Students are asked to use an unofficial copy of their high school transcript to enter, or self-report, their course names, course levels and grades for their ninth to 11th grade years, and to mark courses as “in progress” for senior year.

This means that you do not need to submit official transcripts for students applying to Temple University as part of the admissions process. Please make sure you have completed the self-report if you applied to Temple.

Course Selection Presentations!

Course selection presentations will occur during English classes during the week of January 24th. The school counselors will give presentations regarding the course selection process and be available to answer any questions that you might have at that time.

This month’s tip brought to you by Learning How to Learn: How to Succeed in School Without Spending All Your Time Studying by Barbara Oakley, PhD and Terrence Sejnowski, PhD

Lesson 1:

How do you know that you are studying correctly? Well, you probably won’t until you see how you perform on exams in a variety of subjects. However, you can certainly make observations about what techniques and strategies work best for you as a learner . . . and keep in mind that what works for you may not work for your best friend. Everyone has different study needs!

One aspect to consider: Music. Do you benefit from listening to music when you study? Some students focus well with any kind of music, while other students become easily distracted, especially by music with words. Quiet music without words can help some students to focus. And some students need complete silence. Your job is to figure out what works best for you!

More tips to come next month . . .
