4-YEAR UNIVERSITIES: Many colleges are releasing their acceptance letters this month.  UC schools will be sending out all notices by March 31st. Please make sure to check your emails daily and read them carefully for important information.  Here are some tips that can help you during this process:
Usually students have to accept an offer by May 1st but make sure to check your emails and note of any specific deadlines. It seems some universities are changing this date to to accept offers to June 1 but it will vary from school to school.
COMMUNITY COLLEGE: For those seniors heading off to community college next year, you will need to complete a few steps if you did not attend our three onboarding sessions.  Before school closures, Grossmont and Cuyamaca Colleges planned to have events on their campuses in May to help with these steps.  Once we get any updated information, we will communicate it to you.  
FAFSA or CA DREAM ACT: Seniors, if you have not completed your application yet, it is important that you do so in order to access any financial aid for community college, trade/vocational schools and universities next year.  The FAFSA or CA Dream Act must be completed to qualify for the College Promise, which is the first year of community college for free at most community colleges in California. Please go to the following links to complete these documents and make sure to apply for the 2020-21 school year: (for undocumented students) 
Please stay safe and continue to check email and our district website for up-to-date information as it becomes available.
It's a Great Day to Be a Monarch!
