Students are encouraged to visit college campuses. Seniors are allowed two excused school day visits. Students should contact the institutions ahead of time to set up visits. It’s best to visit on days when events are planned. Many open house and other events are listed on the senior bulletin. Students must complete a College Visitation Request Form BEFORE the visit date.
Seniors bound for technical colleges should take ACCUPLACER (FREE on first sitting) on the campus of their chosen technical school or use ACCUPLACER score from their junior year in high school. (To use these scores for schools other than TCTC, students must request scores from TCTC.)
Seniors bound for 4-year colleges (and some 2-year colleges) are encouraged to take the ACT and/or SAT this fall. See act.org and collegeboard.org for details.
Most colleges superscore the SAT.
Colleges will take SAT / ACT scores for admissions consideration. Apply NOW – don’t wait on test scores.
Seniors planning to enter the military should take ASVAB at WOHS, we will offer it sometime this school year.
College Application Month will be celebrated in September and October at WOHS. We will have several college admissions counselors on campus in September and October. This list will continue to grow as more college reps reach out to participate so check back regularly to see an updated list. Seniors must sign up in Guidance to attend these sessions, which will be held from 11:45am – 12:10pm. All sessions will be held in the auditorium. Interested Seniors should go straight to the auditorium at 11:45am on the day of the event.
