College Representative Visits
An updated list of college reps who will be visiting Conard may be found on the Naviance website, posted outside the Career Center and in the cafeteria, and as a link on the Career Center and Guidance web pages. Please continue to check these sources as this list is continuously updated. Students must obtain a pass from their classroom teacher in order to attend a visit during a class period. The student’s classroom teacher will make the final decision as whether to allow a student to attend a college visit. All college visits are held in the College Career Center unless otherwise noted.
An updated listing of scholarships is located on the Naviance website. Students and parents should check the Naviance website on a continuing basis to be aware of currently open scholarships and qualifying criteria. Each scholarship description in Naviance will list the qualifications, deadline and application procedures. Any applications that are paper and not online are available in the file located outside the Career Center door.
SCAMS: Beware of companies that charge fees or guarantee scholarships. Offers that guarantee scholarships or ask for money to “hold” the scholarship may be a scam. Check out the Federal Trade Commission website (http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/scholarship/index.html) for more information on scholarship scams.
