    COLLEGE APPLICATION PROCESS

    CLASS OF 2021

    Strath Haven High School uses the Naviance program for submittal of official transcripts, Secondary School Reports (SSR), school profile, and counselor and teachers letters of recommendation. We will be using Naviance eDocs for our electronic submission.  This system delivers information to over 1,000 colleges and universities.

    Information and Forms

    All information and FORMS are posted on the SHHS website under the Guidance tab.  Please visit this location for a link to Naviance Family Connection.  Your username and password were given to you by your guidance counselor in both your sophomore and junior year.  If you do not have either of them, please see Mrs. Seifrit in the Counseling Center.

    MANDATORY

    Register on Common Application (www.commonapp.org) and note your username and password. When you log onto Naviance, click on the "Colleges" tab and then on the "Colleges I'm Applying to" link. You will be asked to sign off on the FERPA (Family Education Rights & Privacy Act) waiver and to provide your Common App information. 
    WE CANNOT SEND ANY DOCUMENTS UNTIL YOU DO THIS.
     
     
    We highly recommend that students waive their right to access recommendations since colleges strongly prefer this option.  You must complete the FERPA even if you are not submitting the Common Application.
