Financial Aid: If you haven't done so already fill out your FAFSA for potential college aid.
Seniors, do not miss out on applying for Financial Aid for college! The FAFSA, which stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid can be found at www.fafsa.gov . If you need help filling it out, please come to the Guidance Department.
All Students MUST leave the building directly after school.

Senior Year To Do List
Spring Senior Checklist
- Meet with your counselor to ensure you are on track to graduate and to begin the college application process.
- Create a master calendar of deadlines. Include college applications, test registrations and test dates, scholarship applications, housing and financial deadlines.
- Look for scholarships. Both local and national are posted to Naviance. CMHS has a very generous community and they provide over 50 local scholarships which are awarded just to CMHS students.
- Apply to minimally 3 colleges. Using eDocs in Naviance you can apply in most cases to universities online or at least request/download application information, request transcripts and recommendation letters all from this site. Also, complete the “Who Am I” packet, located in guidance, to give those who are writing a letter of recommendation for you. This will provide them with the information needed to write your letter.

- Complete the FASFA forms starting January 1st.
- Decide on a college and notify the admissions office by May 1st of your acceptance. Notify other colleges who have accepted you that you will not be attending. Bring your acceptance letters to guidance so we can recognize your accomplishments.
