Orange Sheets for Seniors
If you have an application with a November 1st deadline, you must complete a Transcript Request Form (“Orange Sheets”) and turn it in to your College Counselor by October 17. Stop by the College Counseling Office to get a form.
Seniors - Financial Aid Forms
The FAFSA and the CSS Financial Aid Profile become available online beginning October 1. These are the two forms that colleges use to determine financial aid eligibility. The FAFSA is used by all colleges for federal, state and college-sponsored financial aid. The CSS Profile is used for non-federal financial aid from almost 400
colleges and scholarship programs. Not all colleges require the CSS Profile so be sure to check each college individually for their requirements. For priority consideration, submit your financial aid forms as soon as possible after October 1st.
