I will be a senior next year; how do I find out information about college applications?

  • Counselors will be scheduling Senior Meetings over the summer. To schedule a meeting, please contact your counselor.
  • We will also be presenting to students during the very beginning of school the procedures for how students can request to have college application materials to the colleges they are applying. These sessions will either be held in the classroom or digitally should we remain online when school returns.


How do I request a transcript?

The process for requesting a transcript has changed for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please note, while HCPSS buildings are closed all transcripts will be sent electronically.  Seniors, please contact your School Counselor for the fillable Waiver of Right form and fillable Transcript Request Form.  These are the forms SENIORS will use to request transcripts for colleges, scholarships, etc.  Despite what it says on the forms, HCPSS will not be charging for transcripts at this time.  Please use the below links to request transcripts for any other reason:

This information will also be posted to the student CANVAS pages.
 

Who do I contact to register to come to Mt. Hebron High School?
