Senior Naviance Info

Seniors - We have an IMPORTANT message for those seniors planning to apply to college in the fall.  For the 2020-2021 academic year, Bellefontaine High School will be using Naviance for college document submissions. Naviance will simplify the processes the counseling department and teachers follow to send transcripts, school reports, and recommendation letters to colleges, including all Common Application colleges.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR APPLYING WITH THE COMMON APP

Seniors using the Common App for college applications, will need to follow the instructions on the video link below to integrate their Common Application with Naviance.  Please do not invite any teacher or counselors to write letters of recommendation through Common App. This process will take place in Naviance for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Once the Common App is matched to Naviance, students will then able to request transcripts and teacher recommendations in Naviance Student.  The counseling department will have advisory sessions available to students about this process AT THE ONE STOP SHOP EVENTS at the high school on September 3rd from 3-7 and 4th from 1-5 as well as when school begins.

If you are interested in learning more, or starting this process now, these videos will help you understand this process better:
