Hi Folks, just a reminder to send your transcripts, with your Fall grades on them, to the Cal States and to any other schools that asked for them. Even if you sent them in when you applied, you need to send your most recent ones. Even if you’ve been accepted, you need to send your most recent ones.
Let me tell you a little story. Last year, one of our students was accepted to CSUF (Go Titans!). He thought he was in the clear, stopped checking his CSUF “portal,” and missed the note on his “to do” link to send in his 7th semester transcripts. A couple of days after the deadline, he realized his mistake, and quickly sent them. However, it was to no avail. Because he missed the deadline, he had his admission acceptance taken away. Unfortunately, it was his only acceptance, and he is now attending community college. He missed a big opportunity just because he failed to check his portal and meet a simple deadline.
Please don’t let the same thing happen to you. Make sure you meet all your deadlines and follow through with any documents the schools request. After all, you don’t want to give me a heart attack, right?
