College & Career Center
Naviance College Organization Software

Sequoia's Guidance Department, which includes the College/Career Center and IB, all use Naviance as one of the main preparation, organization and communication tools for students' post secondary (life after high school) planning.

Some of the Activities Include:

  • Weekly grade level email communication about college information, upcoming events and student opportunities by Ms Ignaitis.
  • Individual guidance counselor's emails to their students
  • Grade level classroom activities: College and Scholarship Searches, Career and Personality Assessments, and Resume Writing (Students keep track of all their awards and activities)
  • During the application process, seniors must use Naviance to complete tasks to request letters of recommendation and documents from the school including transcripts.
  • Sign up for college visits
  • Students create Four-Year Plan with their counselors

It is important for all students to use Naviance if they are planning on going to college. Students should keep track of colleges they are interested in by listing them on their College tab, update their resumes when they begin activities or receive awards. Students can access Naviance through the school's website wherever internet is available.

It is also important to read the weekly emails to keep informed about events and opportunities. Please note that if you need to contact Ms Ignaitis, you must use her email or this website (if you hit reply on the weekly email, I never get it).

Parents can get accounts to log on to their child's account but do not have access to change any information. See below on how to get a parent account.

  • Click here to enter Naviance
    Quick Directions to Sign Up for a Naviance Account 1. Ask your counselor to create or reset your account 2. Go to Quick Links on this website 3. Click on Naviance website link 4. It will ask you for your email and a password


Scholarships

All scholarships are listed on Sequoia's Naviance webpage: http://connection.naviance.com/sequoia (link listed above)

Scholarships are updated on a weekly basis.

It is helpful to use the scholarship match function (scholarships are tagged under different categories)



What is the Best Way to Receive College Information
  • Get a Naviance account and check it often. You can receive emails and bulletins about upcoming events and important time sensitive information.
  • Check out the calendar and the College & Career Center section on the Sequoia High School website for upcoming events and news
  • Email Ms Ignaitis tignaiti@seq.org with any questions and concerns
  • Read the Weekly Emails sent through Naviance to a student's Naviance account email.


SAT/ACT Exams

SAT Reasons and SAT Subject Area Exams are required for most private colleges.

Signing Up for the SAT (Three Steps)

PART I: Signing Up for the SAT
To sign up for the SAT you need to go sign on to your CollegeBoard account (or create one).
HINT: The name you use for this account is the name you will use for all your college applications. It is difficult to change your name on CollegeBoard, MAKE SURE IT IS CORRECT.
HINT: Make your password the same as your Naviance password if possible - ALSO as soon as you make the account go on to your Naviance account and complete a quick survey to save your CollegeBoard username and password. Go to About Me tab and click on CollegeBoard Account listed under Surveys to Take on the left side column. Once you complete a survey it will appear in Completed Surveys in case you forget (MANY DO)

CollegeBoard: http://www.collegeboard.org/
Click on SAT Home
Click on Register Now
Click on either Sign In or Sign Up
Then start the registration process

PART II: Sending Scores as a Junior
You don't send scores at this point EXCEPT for UCs and CSUs.

For CSU:

You can send them to CSU Mentor and they will go to ALL CSUs!!!
In the Send Scores section, go to the right corner of the page and click on More Search Option. A small box will appear and put the following code in the space: 3594.
This will save you money it is free at this point but most schools do not want them.

For UC:

Send them to one UC and all will go to all!

PART III Fee Waiver Instructions for SAT
(free/reduced lunch, AVID, Upward Bound students)

Go to room 40 and ask them to send Ignaitis an email that states you are free or reduced lunch. Then come to room 45 and pick up a fee waiver from me. Do not wait until the last day!

Sign on to www.collegeboard.com and go to SAT Registration

You can use the waiver for either SAT Reasoning Test or SAT Subject Tests
SAT Reasoning is one day (four hour exam)
SAT Subject Tests you can take up to three exams (each exam is 1 hr)

When it asks if you want the answer for an additional fee, click YES (it is free)

Use the whole CODE starting with 052605 (handwritten) and the letters/numbers.

Keep the fee waiver for your records. You might need later!!
