Here are two great websites where you can go to check colleges, so naturally I want to share them with you.
Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) lists the Regional Accrediting organizations at
http://www.chea.org/Directories/regional.asp. If the school is located in this website, it is a reputable college.
Another website is http://nces.ed.gov/ which uses the College Navigator. All colleges are listed
here - even proprietary schools. Check the accreditation for the college. It the college has been
accredited through Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), it is probably a proprietary school.
Normally if a student goes to an ACICS accredited school and decides to transfer to a UC, CSU or CC
he/she will not be able to use those credits... and proprietary colleges are not inexpensive.
If students are interested in playing sports in college, they must register with NCAA at www.eligibilitycenter.org.
They will click on the student section. In the upper right hand corner students click "New Account" and
then just go on from there.
When Students can Register:
It is recommended that the students sign up for NCAA as soon as they know that they want to play
sports in college - preferably by junior year.
Students will also have to submit transcripts. Transcripts may be requested via the Student Records
Office or through me. It is the students' responsibility to request the transcript.
Cost for Application:
US Citizens: $65
International - this means ANY student who complete ANY part of high school outside of the US $95
If students are part of the meal program AND used an SAT fee waiver, they automatically qualify for a fee waiver. Not having done this before, I believe that a student needs to let me know that he/she has registered, and then I check the account and validate the fee waiver. Both US citizens and International students may receive the fee waiver.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Ms. Soldevilla
