Please remember you have to have sent your SAT/ACT/AP scores directly to colleges by their deadlines in your portal with the campus or via their email communication to you. Some deadlines have already passed, others are typically early February. You send SAT and AP through collegeboard.org account and ACT scores through your actstudent.org account.
If you have to take the EPT and/or the ELM, then make sure you know their deadline and register ASAP at - https://ept-elm.ets.org/CSU/
Seniors and parents,
Seniors who have applied to universities. Make sure you have set up your portals for each campus, checked if they have received test scores from collegboard.org &/or actstudent.org - if not make sure you have sent them, and checked to see if they want you to send transcripts - if so send them through parchment.
Portals or myXcollege accounts vary by college - some are different process like UCSD and you have to search for it or follow different process - http://admissions.ucsd.edu/freshmen/timeline.html
some are clear cut right on the college website like CSU San Marcos - below the main picture on right - myCSUSM - http://www.csusm.edu/
They are inform you what is required and what has been received. If you have any issues logging in, identifying you ID numbers, etc - use their help links or contact their admissions office to help insure you have access to your portal/account and have all the info you need.
Sending test scores. They have to be sent directly from collegeboard - https://www.collegeboard.org/ - for SAT and AP scores via your account. If you have trouble remembering username password or created multiple accounts use the help links on their site or call them directly. ACT scores have to be sent via your - http://www.actstudent.org/ - account and contact them if you have any issues getting into your account. See Mrs. King in regards to sending your IB test scores.
Sending Transcripts. Even thought most colleges say see your counselor to send transcripts. Student and parents have to do that through parchment - electronic online process or through requesting hard copy to be mailed. We strongly, strongly encourage you to use parchment if your school uses it - vast majority do - it is easiest, fastest, and legal proof of your sending the transcript. If anyone is one free/reduced lunch or foster youth, then please see your counselor and your fees for the transcripts will be waived. See theTranscript Information page under Quick Links on the left of GOHS High School. Students who have used online common application or sendedu do not have to worry about sending 1st semester or mid-year transcripts - we do that through our side. YET ALL STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SENDING THEIR FINAL TRANSCRIPTS SINCE WE WILL NOT BE IN THE OFFICE WHEN GRADES OFFICIALLY POST AROUND JUNE 15TH!

Sometimes you are having a hard time with something and it helps to have a friend explain it, right!? That is why we have started a PEER TUTORING program in the GOHS library.
Tutors will be available Mondays from 7:30 - 8:30 in the morning,
and Tuesday through Thursday after school from 2:30 to 3:30.
When you come to the library, check in with our Peer Tutor Coordinator in order to get connected to a tutor. We will also log you in, so if your teacher or parent wants you to get more help, we have a record of it.
If you want to be a tutor, please tell Mrs. King so she can add you to the tutor list, or show up at the library and tell the Peer Tutor Coordinators or the librarians that you would like to help.
Tutors are available for math, science, Spanish and history, but if you have a special need, please tell the Coordinator who will have you fill out a sheet so that we can find you some help!
Remember: The strength of the Wolf is the Pack; let's help each other!
