Planning a College Visit:

 

  • Juniors and Seniors may take up to three college visitation days per year.  Requests for college visitation days must be submitted in advance via the College Visitation Form.  The completed form should be returned to Mrs. White in the Counseling Office.  The form must be returned at least three school days prior to the student absence.
  • Upon submission of the college visitation form, Ms. White will provide the formal request for a college visit.  The request will require student, parent and college representative signature.   After the visit, the form should be returned to Mrs. White who will record the excused absence.
  • Assignments missed during your college visitation day(s) should be submitted prior to the absence, unless other arrangements are made with the teacher.
  • College visitation days will not be granted during final exams.
