College and Career Planning: Class of 2023

  • As students begin their senior year, we strongly encourage them to visit Naviance to research and plan for college, explore careers, and find scholarships. Naviance is a college and career software available to all Fulton County Schools. Naviance can be accessed through ClassLink. Note - Naviance will be available on August 1, 2022.

    For students planning to attend college, Naviance Student will also be used to request and process transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other college application documents. After a student completes his/her research and compiles a list of colleges they are applying to in Naviance, students will need to become familiar with the different platforms colleges use to have students apply. These platforms include:

    If using * Common Application to apply to college, students will need to:

    1. Create a Common App account.
    2. Match Common App accounts to Naviance. This can only be done on or after August 1.
    3. Do not request counselor or teacher recommendations until after matching accounts on or after August 1. *

    * Note: Making counselor or teacher recommendation requests before August 1 will create issues with processing a college application. Therefore, do not make any requests before August 1 once you match your Common App account to Naviance.

    To help guide seniors with the college application process, use the College Application Timeline and Checklist. We hope seniors find these resources helpful.

    Students interested in going into the workforce, military, or desire to explore other options outside of college should contact their Cambridge Counselor. We are eager to help you develop a plan!
