College / Career Representative Visits
Representatives from approximately 50-75 colleges and universities visit Shepard High School annually. Juniors and Seniors are invited to meet with these admission reps in the Astro Cafeteria. Students are not limited to the number of rep visits they can attend, but please note that each student should be intentionally seeking information regarding the school they sign up to meet. It is the counselor’s discretion to limit time spent during a visit or the amount of rep visits if we deem the student is abusing the process. Please check the college's admissions criteria to make sure you are eligible.
Procedures to sign-up to see a college representative:
1.) Sign-up for the specific college with this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd-CCthwcE_FI2jOkN8LPQMoNLd0bk-TN0F-weyWBtC3k2jcA/viewform?usp=pp_url
2.) Receive a pass from the Counseling department.
3.) Have the pass signed by your classroom teacher at least 2 days PRIOR to the visit.
4.) Bring the signed pass to the Astro Café or the Cafeteria at the start of the period on the day of the college visit and a counselor will update your attendance. (If you do not have a pass approved by the teacher, then you will be sent immediately back to class.)
5.) If you have lunch during the period of the visit, then do not go to lunch first. Instead, report directly to the Astro Café at the start of the period. You will be released with a pass with enough time to get your lunch. (You are not required to get your homeroom teacher's signature on the pass). Check with Counseling to see if the rep is in the Astro Cafe or student Cafeteria.
Rep visits are added often so get in the habit of checking this link for more upcoming visits!
