Individual College Meetings with CACs
We are now meeting with seniors to finalize each student's college list and to talk about the logistics and due dates of college applications. These meetings will be completed by October 12.
Virtual Fall College Visits
The nature of remote learning IMSA has made a few changes to our Fall College Visit Program for this academic year. Our approach to providing opportunities for our students to hear from prospective colleges is threefold:
1. The IMSA College Counselors encourage our students to attend the Strivescan Virtual College Exploration sessions.
2. The IMSA College Counselors encourage our students to visit the admissions page of college websites for virtual presentations and virtual tours.
3. We will host IMSA-only Zoom meetings with our most prolific college partners. We want to make sure we offer an opportunity to the college representatives at these IMSA college partners to meet with our students, provide information, and offer a Q & A session.
College Application Process
We will start sending students' college documents via Naviance on October 15. Please regularly check your student's "Colleges I am Applying to" link on Naviance Student to see the status of submitted documents by your student's CAC.
The 2021-2022 FAFSA and the CSS Profile will be available on October 1. These forms must be submitted if your student is interested in being considered for a financial aid award. We recommend that you submit these forms no later than December 1. The FAFSA should be sent to all colleges on the student's list. The CSS Profile should be send to those colleges that require it.
