Places are limited, so sign up as soon as possible with Mrs. Welsh, in person or by email: welshs@mdusd.org. There will be a mini college fair at the end of the evening. This is always the most popular event organized by the Career Center, so don't procrastinate!

Athletic Boosters' scholarship application now available

Scholarships arrive almost every day so keep checking that binder!

Pick up your PSAT results!
 
Juniors who took the PSAT in October should pick up their results from the Career Center.

The whole point of taking the test is to get feedback on strengths and weaknesses to better prepare for the SAT or ACT. About 85% of the juniors who took the test have failed to collect their results. Please come to get them ASAP.

Important information for seniors
 
New scholarships are arriving all the time. Check out the scholarship binder in the College & Career Center and the Career Center website. The deadline for the Rossmoor scholarship is Mon., Feb. 9. Remember--you have to have your federal EFC included in your application, so file your FAFSA now!
 
All families of seniors who will be attending any form of higher education (2yr/4yr; public/private; for profit/not-for-profit) should plan to complete the FAFSA by the end of February at the very latest. Earlier is better. Get a PIN from pin.ed.gov to use as your electronic signature and fill out the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you don't have 2014's tax information organized yet, you should estimate based on 2013's taxes and then update your FAFSA after you have filed your taxes for 2014. DON"T WAIT!
