|The first contact with Wilcox High School counselors begins in the eighth grade when counselors visit the middle schools to program students for their ninth grade classes. UC and Cal State requirements are discussed with students. This process is repeated in the ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades.
Senior year guidance begins with the counselor visit to English classes to discuss the college application, financial aid, and scholarship process. Procedures for obtaining college applications, assistance with filling them out, and processes for requesting private school recommendations are all detailed to students. Cal State and UC application workshops are offered through the career center.
|Check List for College Recommendations|
Directions: Please complete the following Check List before turning in Counselor Recommendation Forms to the counselor from whom you wish a recommendation. Please allow three working weeks prior to due dates.
If you are using the Common Application, it is your responsibility to provide copies and stamped, addressed envelopes for each college to which you are applying. Although some colleges accept the Common Application, generally it is preferable to fill out the college's individual application form.
