Senior Checklist

  1. Update SCOIR with Application Decisions: Log into SCOIR, mark accepted, denied, waitlisted, etc at all the schools you applied to.

  2. Mark ENROLLING in SCOIR by May 1st: If you are uncertain by 5/1 because of the delay in FAFSA, please reach out to your counselor. The graduation program needs to be printed and we can discuss what to put in the program. 

  3. Turn in Scholarship Offers: Please send in copies of ANY AND ALL scholarships (must have the name of the scholarship and dollar amount) to Ms. McCoy at gmccoy@nerinxhs.org

  4. Send your UMSL ACP and/or SLU 1818 to your College: Did you take a course for SLU 1818 or UMSL ACP Credit? If so, send your transcripts from UMSL or SLU. Please note:

  • If you are currently enrolled in a 1818 or ACP class, mark the option to wait until grades are posted before sending. Usually by mid-June.

  • If you need a transcript sooner because you are registering for classes at your college, you can choose to have a transcript sent to yourself and bring with you. Once grades are posted, you will need to send your transcript to your college.                                                                                                            SLU Transcript Request                                                                                                                            UMSL Transcript Request 

Finish Strong - Final Transcripts: Seniors...finish the year strong!!! Final Transcripts will be sent to your school in early June. Please make sure you are keeping up with your work and getting it turned in on time. 

Connect with your College Now: Here are a few tips on how you can get started on making college connections before you leave:-Attend a local meet and greet (check with your college to see if they offer this).                                  -Join your class’s Facebook/Instagram/etc Group; most schools have a social media page for incoming freshmen students                                                                                                                         -Attend an admitted students day

Newman Center Connection: Students wanting to connect with a Catholic Campus Minister at college...try connecting with a Newman Center on campus or one close by. Click here to learn more.

Can’t decide where to go?? According to College Counselor, Joanne Korte Elliott, “Students need to remember that they can be happy in more than one place. This is true for most of life’s decisions. You can love more than one house you buy, be successful in more than one job, or be equally happy with either car you choose to purchase.” If you're still stuck between two colleges, click here for some strategies to help. 

FAFSA Update

Student Financial Aid Offers/Packages (also called Award Letters) are delayed. These Award Letters tell you exactly what scholarships, grants and loans your student qualifies for and also provides you with your out of pocket cost. Unfortunately, colleges didn’t receive FAFSA information until the beginning of March and are continuing to get FAFSA information. They are working hard to prepare Award Letters for students. Because of this delay, many schools have pushed back their May 1 decision deadline to May 15 or later. 

Please look for emails from the college about the financial aid process and any updated decision deadlines or reach out to the Financial Aid office with questions or concerns. Know that colleges are working hard to get letters out as soon as possible. More information about the delay and to stay informed is available here

Once you begin to receive Award Letters, use this link to better understand and compare your offers: Comparing Financial Aid Offers.
