College Visits
Seniors are allowed 3 school days to visit their potential college choices. You should ask the college for a signature verifying your visit and turn it in to attendance when  you return. Most colleges have tours and orientations on Fridays for high school seniors. You can get the information from their websites.

College planning starts your Freshman year of high school and continues

throughout your high school years. The following links can be used as a

guide to help you stay on track and explore ways to find out which colleges are for you and how you can build a schedule of classes and extracurricular activities that will ensure you get admitted.

Dual Enrollment Opportunities

Students are allowed to attend courses at local colleges or universities while attending their own high school. This is called “dual enrollment”.

 

The State School Aid Act contains a provision that directs school districts to assist

students in paying tuition and fees for courses at Michigan public or private colleges or

universities, if all of the following conditions are met:

 

  1. Twelfth-grade students who do not have all the high school Michigan Merit Exam (MME) endorsements may take eligible classes in the areas in which they received an endorsement. Because endorsements are not given in other areas, students are eligible to dual enroll in college level courses as long as they have taken all of the MME components. These selections must meet the approval of the principal.
  2. Students in the 12th grade must have the following scores on the ACT: Mathematics (22), Reading (21), Science (24), and English (18). See Chart Below.
  3. Students in the 10th and 11th grade must have the following scores on the PLAN Test: Reading (21), Math (22), Science (24), English (18). See Chart Below.
  4. Students in the 9th grade must have the following score on the Explore Test: Reading (17), Math (19), Science (21), English (15). See Chart Below.
  5. The college courses must be academic courses (as opposed to “activity courses”).
  6.  A student may only dual enroll for courses not offered at Roseville High School or where there is a scheduling conflict.
  7. Roseville Community Schools will count the college course as high school credit. The school will not include the course grade in the student’s GPA. Each individual college will determine if they will count the course as college credit.
  8. Dual Enrollment courses are limited based on State Requirements.

College Recruiters
Recruiters from various colleges come to Roseville High in the fall to meet our students. You can sign up for these presentations in the counseling office. A pass will be sent the day of the visit. Your are allowed to attend three presentations.

 

Transcripts
Colleges will require that a high school transcript be sent directly from the counseling office to verify accuracy. Transcripts are now sent electronically. Please go to http://www.prachment.com to set up your account. You can then send transcripts to any college through this service. If you have any difficulties, instructions are available in the counseling office.
