Applying to College
While Naviance will continue to be used to research and plan for college, students will now apply and request transcripts and recommendation letters to college using the following platforms:
Individual College Application Portal (visit school’s admissions website)
Requesting Additional Transcripts
Many of the abovementioned college application platforms will allow school counselors to upload high school transcripts. Therefore, students will not have to request transcripts outside of the application platform. However, if/when needed, students can request transcripts here via ScribOrder.
Postsecondary Plan Survey in Naviance
Whether you want to go to a four-year or two-year institution, the military, workforce, take a gap year, or still unsure, your counselor is here to help! We are asking all seniors to complete the Class of 2024 Post Secondary Plan Survey in Naviance by the end of August. Attached is a PDF on how to access the survey in Naviance.
Senior Information Sheet
If you are applying to college/university that requires a counselor recommendation letter, you must complete a Senior Information Sheet no later than September 8, 2023. This can be found on www.northviewcounseling.com under Quick Links. Once completed, please save as a PDF or Word Document, and email it to your counselor.
