College Application Process 

Seniors are asked to notify their school counselor of an upcoming college application deadline two weeks in advance in order for the counselor to process and submit their portion of the application on time. Please see the table below for notification deadlines. An invitation to the student’s common application account and selection of a decision plan is considered proper notification.

Sending Quarter 1 Grades to Colleges

If your senior had a strong first quarter, we encourage him/her to send the 1st Quarter Report Card to colleges. Be sure to include a short cover letter with the report card that includes name, date of birth, address, email, phone number, and student ID for each college if you have one.

If one of his/her colleges requests that the 1st Quarter Report Card be sent from a school counselor, please have him/her complete the transcript request form available in  the guidance office. He/she should indicate on the form that the 1st Quarter Report Card is being requested to be sent.

Midyear Grades

School counselors will upload and send midyear grades to all colleges on common app automatically in mid-February. If a college requires that midyear grades be sent through another application platform (send.edu, coalition…), students should let their school counselor know. If a college requires a hard copy of midyear grades be sent via mail, students need to complete a Midyear Transcript Request Form which is available in the NKHS Guidance Office and submit it to Ms. Budlong in the Guidance Office.

We also had students create a working resume that they will add to throughout high school.
