    The SAT and/or ACT assessments are required for many scholarships and college application requirements.  If you are a senior planning to take the SAT, the next deadline for registration of the spring test is February 8th, 2019.  It is a good idea to take one or both of these tests prior to your junior and/or senior year so that you can work on improving your score by junior and/or senior year.  The websites for registering for these tests are below. 
    The FAFSA is required for accessing most financial aid, grants, scholarships, and college admissions.  Senior students and their parents need to complete an application.  The first step is creating an FSA ID  It is important to complete this as soon as possible so that opportunities for financial aid are possible.  The links are below.  Please don't hesitate to call or email if you need assistance completing the FAFSA.
    Oregon Promise Grant and Scholarship Opportunities:
    Visit the OSAC website to complete an application for the Oregon Promise Grant if you would like to have the opportunity to get up to two years of community college tuition paid for.  There are minimum requirements.  This OSAC website also includes over $18 million scholarship opportunities.  Please don't hesitate to call or email if you need assistance completing the OSAC- Oregon Promise application. See the link below for details and registration.
