By Omar Zazueta, Admission Practices Committee Chair Elect

As the application season comes to an end and we inch closer to May 1, it is a good idea for colleges and counselors to review the Statement of Principles of Good Practices.

Students and parents rely on admission, community college, and high school counselors to help them understand the admission process which many of them are going through for the first time. This includes admission notifications, financial aid awards, and all important deadlines. Some deadlines can be confusing including commitments, housing, scholarship, and submission of final transcripts.   If you believe a student is being put in a situation that possibly violates the language in SPGP, please do not hesitate to reach out to the AP Committee for assistance. We can help you understand the issue and respond with a course of action for all parties involved.
