We have created a timeline to help our seniors be aware of some important dates regarding their college preparation.  Please note that dates are subject to change and that students are responsible to verify deadlines. You can access the senior timeline here.  Although it is a senior timeline, this document is valuable for 9th graders, 10th graders, and 11th graders to explore as well!  It is never too early to begin investigating colleges and learning about their admission requirements. Each university is unique in their admission requirements, so it is vital for students (and parents!) to begin learning about the universities that they are interested in attending so they can plan their high school courses and extracurricular activities accordingly.

Some dates to pay special attention to:
  • November 5th is the Paying for College Night held at Granger High School at 7pm.  This event is focused on teaching students between 9th and 12th grade about the various financial aid options available like grants, scholarships, work-study, and student loans.  This event also has representatives from Utah’s colleges and universities to answer any questions students may have regarding their institutions.  You can register for this event here.  There is a flyer attached to this email.
  • November 17th is when the Regents’/New Century Scholarship application becomes available.  This scholarship encourages Utah high school students to prepare for college academically and financially by taking a core course of study and saving for college.  This scholarship may be used at any public college or university in the Utah System of High Education, as well as at BYU-Provo, LDSBC, and Westminster.
  • Granite School District will be hosting parent seminars on youth protection during the fall.  Each seminar will address the topics of mental health, substance abuse, bullying, and internet safety.  There is a flyer with more information about dates, time, and locations attached to this email.
