As we close in on the Early Decision deadline of November 1st, we want to express our pride in how much our seniors have already accomplished in the college application process. We are excited to see them hit "Submit"!

UC Rep Visit This Week

Any student applying to a UC should come meet Joel Ontiveros, UCLA's representative for our region, when he comes to visit this Tuesday, October 31, from 8:05 to 8:35 AM. Joel has emphasized that he is available to discuss the UC system as a whole, not just UCLA. He is certain to be a very helpful resource.

Reminder: Demonstrating Interest

A reminder to juniors and seniors: if you cannot come to a particular rep visit because of class, check with your teacher and see if you can just come to the presentation for five minutes so that you can introduce yourself to the rep and to fill out the information card which will demonstrate your interest. 

Scholarships at Tulane

Tulane notes that students planning to apply for one of their full-tuition scholarships must apply for admission under Early Decision or Early Action by their November deadlines. The scholarship applications are due by December 5. You can learn about all of their scholarships here.


Tulane also wants it known that they are committed to making education affordable for any student qualified for admission. In additional to merit scholarships, they offer significant need-based financial aid. They encourage applicants to submit the FAFSA and the CSS Profile financial aid forms now and preferably by mid-December for Early Action and Early Decision applicants. For the 2017-18 school year, 77% of freshmen received financial aid with an average package of $45,312 for students with demonstrated need. Tulane also offers a special need-based aid program for families with an adjusted gross income of $75,00 or less.

ACT Prep Course Update

Our friend Patrick Hennes at AJ Tutoring emailed us this week to note that he had made a mistake in the flyer we sent out with the last edition of News and Views: the ACT prep classes he will offer here on campus will run from 12:30 to 3:30 PM, not 12:30 to 4:30 PM. You can see a corrected flyer here.

University of Redlands' Hunsaker Scholarship

Three years ago, the University of Redlands received a historic $35 million gift from their most generous benefactors to fund the The Richard and Virginia Hunsaker Scholarship Prize. This highly competitive award is designed to recognize and support exceptional student achievement in leadership and civic engagement. It extends beyond the scope of traditional scholarship programs to meet each recipient's full demonstrated financial need for all four years at Redlands, while also providing the opportunity to participate in an expenses-paid networking trip to a major metropolitan city where they'll meet with alumni leaders in a variety of fields. For more information, see here.

Applications to the CSU System

The California State University (CSU) system has updated the application process for all 23 CSU campuses with the new CAL STATE APPLY. Although more intuitive then the previous CSU Mentor application, there have been questions regarding international student applications and A-G requirements. With that in mind, the CSU has created the CAL STATE APPLY International Application Guide.

 

If, after reading these materials, you still have questions about the CSU application process, please contact Ms. Van Wagenen or Mr. White.
