scholarship search engines

Here are some scholarship search engines that I have found helpful to students.  Many of these have the same scholarships in their database - find a site you feel comfortable navigating!

College Information for Seniors

Senior Final Transcript Request Link - Now Open

(This is for both community college and 4-year colleges)

Please use this Google Form link to let me know which college you will be attending next year so that I may submit the final transcript when it becomes available.  This includes DVC and any other community college. 

May 1st is generally the date that most colleges need your commitment by, but if you have already committed, please complete the form now.  If you are waitlisted you may include the college that you are committing to along with your waitlisted colleges.  I will submit transcripts to all of the options just to ensure that they receive it.  You must have your college listed in the “Colleges that I am applying to” list in Naviance for me to be able to submit.  If you are unsure on how to do this, come see Mr. Walters in the College & Career Center for assistance (it only takes 5 minutes).  In the form I am also requesting a non MDUSD email as a contact. 

Final transcripts generally aren’t available to me for submission until a few weeks after the school year has finished so I need a way to contact you if I have any questions.

Best Wishes,

Mr. Walters

It's a standardized test that students can take before applying to colleges. The exam tests students on math, reading, and writing content by having students analyze and evaluate problems.

A student can score between 400-1600; the higher the score a student achieves, the better their chances are for college admission. 

The test is offered through an organization called the CollegeBoard, which also offers other standardized exams such as the PSAT/NMSQT and AP exams. A student must register on the CollegeBoard's website to take the test.
