I also collaborate with school staff and parents in order to best meet the needs of students.

My plans are to make this page your one stop shop! Any information for college can be found here for students and parents.

SENIOR INFORMATION

Which website do I go to for this?

Seniors will be using MANY accounts when applying to college. The main ones they will use are Parchment (for HS Transcript/HS GPA), College Board (To send/view SAT scores), GA FUTURES (to view HOPE GPA), ACT.ORG (view/submit ACT TESTS), and if the senior is taking dual enrollment then they will need a banner web account through Gordon State for their college transcript. 

Click on the drop down link to the right for more information. 

Parchment

This is where you can see your transcript, order, and send to colleges. 

https://www.parchment.com/u/registration/264319/account

 

 

College Board

Every Junior/Senior must have a college board account in order to register for the SAT. College Board is where you register for the SAT and request scores to be sent to your college of choice.

www.collegeboard.org

 

GA Futures

GA Futures provides information on college planning, money for college, and HOPE/ZELL Miller information. All seniors must have a GA Futures account when applying to college. Any student can view their current HOPE GPA by clicking this link and logging into their account. 

www.gafutures.org

Dual Enrollment Students/College Transcript

If you are a dual enrollment student, you must send an official transcript from Gordon to show the college classes you are taking or have taken. You have 2 transcripts to send.

1. Your Parchment (HS Transcript)

2. Your Gordon Transcript (College Transcript). Your college classes will also show up on your HS transcript but it is not considered an official college transcript until it comes from the college.
