Financial Aid Presentation - Pay for College: Getting Started 

 

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

SENIORS (Class of 2021): www.collegeboard.org

Counselors will be sending out appointments for your individual senior evaluation. Please make sure to check your emails for the appointment time.

 

SAT Updates:

Discontinuing SAT Subject Tests
College Board will no longer offer the Subject Tests in the U.S. Students in the U.S. will automatically have their registrations canceled and receive a refund.


Discontinuing the optional SAT Essay
This decision recognizes that there are other ways for students to demonstrate their
mastery of essay writing. At the same time, writing remains essential to college
readiness, and the SAT will continue to measure writing and editing skills. The tasks on the SAT Reading and Writing and Language tests are among the most effective and predictive parts of the SAT. Students can take the SAT with Essay through the June 2021 SAT administration.

 

ACT Update:

Use this link for ACT test dates:

Fee Waivers: If you qualify for a Fee Waiver, and need to Register for the SAT, ACT and/or NCAA, please email your Counselor! We will provide you with the necessary CODE to enter on the payment page!

 

JUNIORS (CLASS of 2022):

College entrance exams: As many of you are aware, under the current circumstances, SAT and ACT exams have been postponed and moved to later dates. As this situation continues to be monitored, both the College Board and ACT may intervene and change dates at any time. The best advice that we have is to continue checking both websites, and look out for emails if you have already been affected. Please email your counselor if you have any questions.

Fee Waivers: If you qualify for a Fee Waiver, and need to Register for the SAT, ACT and/or NCAA, please email your Counselor immediately! We will provide you with the necessary CODE to enter on the payment page!


FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORES (Class of 2024 &2023):

Please make sure to log on every day and complete all of your work through Google Classroom. It is very important to stay on top of your assignments.

If you are having any problems/concerns please email your counselor.

This would be a good time for you to work on your resume. Join our Google Classroom to view a sample resume.

 

AP EXAM UPDATE:

Any student enrolled in an AP course will be required to register and pay for the exam in October of 2020. Therefore, no student will be permitted to drop an AP course after they have registered and committed to take the exam. If your child is eligible for free/reduced lunch it is imperative that they fill out the “Free and Reduced Lunch Form” in September of 2020, to qualify for a fee waiver. This form should be filled out as soon as possible.

The cost of AP Exams will be $95 for each exam except AP Capstone Seminar and AP Capstone Research which are $143 for each exam. Checks, cash and money orders will be accepted and should be made out to Freeport Board of Education. Due to the strict College Board deadline, all payments must be received by November 1, 2020.

To prepare for the upcoming school year, please encourage your student to sign up for a College Board account. All College Board programs are connected through one account, so if your student created one for the PSAT/NMSQT or SAT they’re all set. They’ll just need to have their username and password. They should not create a new account if they have an existing account.
