In early September, senior letters are posted on canvas. The senior letter contains important deadlines and events and advises students to review their transcript on Aeries to make sure they are on track for graduation. Counselors also check transcripts and reach out to students who may be in danger of not meeting graduation requirements. In September, we hold group senior meetings and a Senior Parent Coffee to discuss graduation requirements and college admissions. Workshops are offered throughout October and November to help with college application questions.
Every senior who needs a counselor recommendation for private colleges must complete a counselor recommendation packet, which can be found on the counseling canvas page and on the UHS Counseling website at the beginning of a student's senior year. Counselors are available to meet with individual seniors about their college applications and choices. Our college and career coordinator is also available to provide assistance with the college application process. Financial aid workshops are held for parents and families during the fall semester.
Midyear reports to private and out of state colleges are completed in February. Irvine Valley College (IVC) will hold workshops to assist students with applications, orientation, and matriculation starting in February through April. Please contact the college and career coordinator for more information about this. Once seniors have received their letters of acceptance, we are available to meet with individuals to discuss their choices. Throughout the spring, we meet with all seniors who may not be on track to meet graduation requirements.

Counselor recommendations for college
Any senior needing a counselor recommendation for college applications must fill out the Counselor Recommendation Packet. Once completed, please email directly to your assigned counselor (alpha breakdown and counselor emails can be found in the packet). Please be cognizant of deadlines written in the Counselor Recommendation Packet and make sure to turn your packet in on time.
