Counseling Newsletter


If you are interested in requesting a schedule change for 2nd semester, you must complete a Schedule Change Request Form. You can find the form through the link below or by scanning the QR code found in the Counseling office. All requests must be made within the first 10 days of 2nd semester. After this date, no requests will be approved. Please know that while we make every effort to accommodate requests, completing this form does not guarantee a change will and can be made. If your request is approved, it will be reflected on your 2nd semester schedule in Infinite Campus. 


These are the links to the Schedule Change Request Forms 

Please pick the form that corresponds with your last name.

2nd Semester Online Courses 

If you are currently taking a yearlong course through FVS or GAVS, please make sure you have registered for part B of the course. This is not done automatically and requires you go into either FVS or GAVS to request 2nd semester. Please do so immediately and reach out to your counselor if you have any questions. 


This is only for students currently enrolled in an online course, as the deadline to request an online course during this school year was May of last year. Therefore, all students in a face-to-face course currently will remain in that class and will not be able to switch to online for 2nd semester. 



Naviance Deadlines 

As a reminder, you are able and encouraged to submit your college applications once completed to meet your college’s deadline. You do not need to wait for your recommendation letters, transcripts, etc. to be sent before submitting your portion.  

Some deadlines from Common App have not rolled over correctly. To change to the correct deadline, students must click the “EDIT” button on the request page and then click the dropdown for “App Type” and select the correct deadline. Be sure to save any updates! 


January 1 and Other Early January Application Deadlines 

You should have requested a transcript, and if applicable, letter of recommendation at this time. If you have not done so already, please do this as soon as possible. Requests received after this date may be processed by staff upon returning from winter break. 



If you are interested in applying for local, state, college-specific, or national scholarships, please visit for additional information.  


Scholarship Highlight: University of North Georgia Miliary Service Scholarship 

Each year, the state of Georgia awards 42 top-performing high school seniors the University of North Georgia Military Service Scholarship (GMSS).
