Add the college/university to your Naviance list of “colleges I’m applying to” and request “initial transcript”.
Dual credit transcripts must be requested directly from the university or college issuing the college credit. 
Your Antonian counselors can not help with this.
You must request official test scores directly from ACT or the College Board.  Scores sent by your ACP counselor are not official and therefore will not be sent.
Students must request letters directly from the faculty member and provide that faculty member a copy of his/her resume.  After receiving a positive response, students MUST go on Naviance and add the teacher as a recommender in the “recommendation” tab.  IMPORTANT: Student must let the recommender know all the methods that they will be applying, i.e., ApplyTexas, CommonApp, Coalition App.
Generally they begin to open on July 1st prior to a student’s senior year.
This varies by school however, in general students should attempt to apply by Oct. 31 as early deadlines begin in November.
The National Honor Society offers free peer tutoring.  See your counselor to get matched with an NHS tutor.
Antonian is considered a non-ranking school and therefore counselors are prohibited from divulging rank information.  Student quartiles are represented on the transcripts and students who fall within the top 10% will have that rank reported directly to institutions of higher learning or scholarship committees.
A student may walk in for a meeting or email his/her counselor to schedule a specific time.  The counseling office follows an “open-door” policy in regards to meeting with students.
Students do not need to request a final transcript.  Counselors will automatically send final transcripts to the college/university that the student identifies as attending in the graduation program.  If a student desires a transcript be sent to a community college to take summer work, they must request this transcript through Naviance after graduation.
Links to both applications can be found on Naviance.  Students need to use the links to create their own account and begin the application process.
Every student will set up their own College Board account through their registration for their first PSAT.  This is the student’s account and as such the counselors cannot reset it for the student.  Students must contact the College Board for a reset themselves.
Students can reset their own account by using the “forgot password” option.
Students meet with their counselor to determine if their schedule can change and how the schedule change might impact credits and graduation requirements.  If the schedule change is approved by the counselor, the student takes a schedule change form home to be signed by a parent and returns the form to Laura Rodriguez,   the Antonian registrar, to make the schedule change.  The student MUST follow the old schedule until he/she receives a copy of the changed schedule.
