application workshops after school on Tuesday afternoons from 3:40 -- 
4:45 pm in the Library Computer Lab, and Thursday mornings from 8:30 -- 
9:30 AM in the College Career Center. Students do not need to sign up

November 30^th deadline! College Advisors are available to assist with 
application questions during drop-in hours.

2. *Sending Test Scores: *

_Sending Test Scores to UC's_:   Remember, when sending test scores to 
UC's, you only need to send them to ONE UC, and all other campuses will 
then have access to your scores.

_Sending Test Scores to CSU's:_  SAT - List the CSUMentor institution 
code so that CSUMentor can store your scores for any CSU campus to 
retrieve. The CSUMentor institution code for the SAT is *3594.*

ACT - If you have listed a CSU campus as an ACT score report recipient, 
you can use the ACT Scores Manager to release your score to additional 
campuses.  Before you can use the ACT Scores Manager, you must first 
have arranged for your scores to be sent to a CSU campus. If you have 
not yet arranged for your ACT scores to be sent to a CSU campus, you can 
learn how to request this at www.actstudent.org/scores/send/index.html 

If you are registered for the December ACT or SAT, you can arrange for 
your scores to be sent to the schools you are applying to prior to 
taking the test.  You can avoid delays by following this process.

Private Colleges: You must send the test scores to each individual campus.

3. *Educational Opportunity Program (EOP)*: What is Educational 
Opportunity Program (EOP)? The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is 
designed to improve access for and retention of historically low-income 
and educationally disadvantaged students. An EOP student has the 
potential and demonstrated motivation to perform satisfactorily at a 
CSU, but has not been able to realize this potential because of economic 
or educational background. The program provides admission and academic 
assistance to EOP-eligible undergraduate students. In many cases, the 
program offers financial assistance to eligible students. Campuses 
tailor their programs to accommodate the needs of their student 
population (CSUMentor.edu)

Who May Apply?

Only historically low-income and educationally disadvantaged 
undergraduate students who need admission assistance and support 
services to succeed incolleges are admitted to EOP. They must 
demonstrate academic potential and motivation, be California residents 
or otherwise eligible, and meet the income criteria.

For additional information about EOP, please visit:


How to apply to EOP:  In your CSU application, answer "yes" to the 
question asking if you would like to be considered for the EOP.  After 
submitting a CSU application, you will receive a confirmation page. On 
the confirmation page, click on the EOP link.

If you are planning on applying to EOP and would like to receive 
assistance with your application, please visit yourCollegeAdvisor (Ms. 
Price or Mr. Barton) for support.

colleges/universities, check your e-mail accounts frequently.  You will 
likely receive contact from the college you have applied to, 
traditionally providing instructions and information to set up your 
account with the particular school you have applied to.  These accounts, 
often referred to as portals, will be your main line of communication 
with each particular college/university. We recommend checking for 
updates frequently!

6. Seniors who are applying to*Colleges **t**hat are not on the Common 
Application*: please review this message for document submissionguidelines*

a. If the college does not use the Common Application:

- Download the required form (Secondary School Report) from 
the collegewebsite.

- Complete a "Transcript Request Form" (available from the BHS 
Registrar's Office in D173) and sign it.  If you are under 18, the 
parent or guardian must sign.

- Paper-clip the Transcript Request Form and the college's form to a 
large manila envelope addressed to the college, with the Berkeley High 
School address as the return address.  Put on $1.38 in postage (that is 
the large envelope 3 oz. rate).

- Turn in all the large manila envelopes to the College and Career 
Center ASAP

b. Completing forms for *schools that only require an official 
transcript and not a Counselor Recommendation*:

Submit the following forms to the Registrar in room D173:

- A signed transcript request form for each college. If you are under 
18, your parent or guardian must sign it.

- Clip each transcript request from to a stamped business-size envelope 
addressed to the college with Berkeley High School as the return 
address.  Clip all forms and envelopes together.

Remember, CSU's and UC's do not require letters of recommendation for 
admission purposes.  CSU's usually request transcripts, but they do so 
individually and they do not all have the same deadlines.  UC's will 
traditionally request official transcripts in the spring, from students 
who are accepted to their university.  It is important to check your 
email accounts frequently.


*For colleges using the Common App*, the counselor submitting the letter 
of recommendation (also known as the Secondary School Report) will also
