  4. Continue to work on the Resume builder in Naviance by updating all your extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, sports, clubs, awards, work experience, etc. (The Resume in Naviance is a requirement if you are applying to Private/Independent Universities).
  5. Make sure to post all the colleges you are thinking about applying to in the "Colleges I'm Thinking About" section in Naviance.
  6. Take the PSAT in October 10, 2018 as it is the only year you can qualify for the National Merit Scholars Program.
  7. Take either the SAT College Entrance Exam or the ACT plus writing in the Spring before the end of the year. Students who are applying to competitive programs or private colleges will also want to take at least (2) SAT subject area tests as well.
