College Selection and Application Process

  • Each senior is expected to apply online to at least three colleges by November 1.  College deadlines are the responsibility of the student.
  • Secondary school reports should be downloaded and given to the college counselor immediately after filing each application.  The report will be completed by the college counselor and mailed with an official transcript.  The student will provide the mailing addresses for out of state colleges and universities.
  • The student is responsible for contacting the SAT/ACT office(s) and arranging to have official scores mailed to the colleges of choice. 
  • College representatives will visit FBS throughout the fall of each year.  Specifics will be listed on the College Counseling page of RENWEB.  Junior and Senior students who are interested in a particular college briefing must make arrangements with the classroom teachers prior to the scheduled meeting.
  • For statistical purposes, please notify the college counselor of all acceptances and financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans) offers.
  • The student is reminded that college acceptances are provisional.  It is expected that the current level of academic achievement will be maintained.
