12th Grade College Planning

 

FALL

Attend Senior College Meetings:

Mayfield will be offering a Senior College Night at the beginning of the school year Make sure to mark your calendar.

Narrow your College List:

Begin to narrow your College List to 5-8 schools.  Spend time learning as much about these schools as possible through their websites, current students, the Counseling Department, etc.

Create a calendar:

Create a calendar of important dates including college application deadlines, college fairs, scholarship deadlines, ACT/SAT test dates, etc.

Finalize your list:

By October, Seniors should decide where they are applying.  Early Decision and Early Action applications should be submitted as soon as possible.  Please see your School Counselor if you have questions about the difference between applying Early Decision and Early Action.

Ask your teachers/counselor for recommendations:

Find out if your colleges require letters of recommendations.  If so, be sure to give your teachers/counselor plenty of time to write your letter (minimum of 2 weeks notice).  Remember to provide them with your “Brag Sheet,” resume, or list of activities and accomplishments.

Early Action/Early Decision:

For students applying Early Action or Early Decision, most application deadlines fall between November 1-15 (make sure to check the deadline for each of your colleges!). Students applying early will need to request a transcript to be sent to their college(s) from their School Counselor.

Complete applications:

Mayfield students are encouraged to complete their college applications before Thanksgiving Break.  If your application requires essays, consider having an English teacher read over it in order to provide feedback. Don’t forget to proofread!  Request a transcript from your counselor (allow two weeks notice). Remember to keep application deadlines in mind.

WINTER:

Mid-year transcripts:

Some colleges request first semester Senior year grades.  If your colleges require mid-year transcripts, request a transcript from your Counselor upon returning from Winter Break.

Avoid Senior-itis!:

Many colleges continue to monitor your grades and academic performance throughout your Senior year.  Continue to work hard until graduation!

SPRING

Acceptances:

For Regular Decision applications, most acceptance letters and financial aid offers are provided by mid-April.  Before accepting your final school, consider going back to the campus for one final visit.

Securing your spot:

Once you have decided on the college you plan to attend, send your deposit (only commit to ONE school). Final Senior year transcripts will be sent to your college of choice upon graduation.
