Only five more days to go before you don’t need to wake up early and get yourself to ARHS anymore! There are a few things you still may need to do.
Pay your application fees BEFORE YOU LEAVE. If you are not on free or reduced price lunch and if you applied to colleges or for scholarships that required transcripts, you probably owe us money! Even if you are not going to prom, you still need to pay your fees.
To find out how much you owe, click on “manage Transcripts” under Colleges /apply to college in your Naviance account. The amount you owe can be found at the bottom of the page. Remember that for all students, the first four transcript fees have been waived. All transcript fees have been waived for students registered for free or reduced-price meals even though a dollar amount shows on the screen.
Payment can be made:
In person in the Guidance Office via cash or check (payable to Amherst Regional High School), or Electronically by clicking on the UniBank link on your Naviance Home Page. The link will take you to Unibank’s UniPay Gold ARHS site, where you will select “Current Senior Transcript Fees”. Fill in the amount you are paying, your name and ARHS student ID, then click the “Add to Cart” button to add the appropriate account information (Note: All financial information is confidential.)
If you are planning to attend a community college, you must take the Accuplacer exam at the college so you can register for the classes you really want. For best access to classes, take care of this during the week of June 3 if you have not done it already. You do not need to pay the college when registering for classes. If you change your mind before the semester begins, you will not need to pay.
Check your Naviance account. If you are planning to go to college – even part-time, have you indicated which college you will be attending? Amazingly, more than a few of you have not! It’s particularly important to check your account if you changed your mind and may have forgotten to change Naviance. We use the list generated when you indicate which college you will be attending to send your final transcripts – the proof that you have graduated from high school and are eligible to enroll at a college.
All my best to all of you! I will be leaving ARHS this year too. I will retire after twenty years here, thirteen as the college advisor. I have really loved my job and I expect I will also love the liberation from all of the homework!
That’s it! Finish all of your work. Graduate!
