    5. You will need to provide a copy of your student’s recent transcript, with exit grades (for mid-year enrollment). If the transcript is in a language other than English, a translated version must be presented in English for enrollment.

    When everything is complete, your student will be assigned an advisor (incoming freshmen will have a temporary advisor until advisors are assigned in August).  Ms. Mendoza, our enrollment specialist, will give you contact information for the advisor, and you will need to set up a meeting to select the appropriate courses/ schedule so that your student can graduate both college and career ready.
