ACT Testing
All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year. Students can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org . When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.  Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.  The test fee for the ACT is $52.00 and the ACT with Writing is $68.00.  If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child’s counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver. 

HUHS is an ACT test center for most testing dates. The test dates for the 2019-20 school year are:

                           December 14, 2019                       February 8, 2020 (NOT at HUHS)            
April 4, 2020                                  June 13, 2020                                July 18, 2020

Note:  Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on March 3 (no cost to the student on March 3).   When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 8 or April 4 ACT, it may be best for students to take the March 3 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon March results.


College Application Tip
  Save the speech. Tell the tale.  No need to stress out about the college application essay or be nervous if you think of it as a conversation or a story about yourself. You aren’t giving a speech to thousands of people but someone in the Admissions Office who really wants to hear it!   The essay is a story that means something to you and if you are able to convey that meaning to Admissions, you’ve done the job.
 
If you’d like help with your college essay, English teachers are available in the Writing Center during 5 th and 6 th period Flex Tuesday through Thursday.  Ms. Yu is available during Resource   in the Writing Center Tuesday through Friday.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA
 
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2020-21 school year launched, October 1. The FAFSA assesses family finances to help determine your ability to pay for college.

The FAFSA is your primary tool to qualify for federal programs such as Pell grants, work-study programs, and loans. States and colleges also use the FAFSA to qualify students for local financial aid, as well as for school grants and scholarships .
