NW College and Career High School Visit Information
High School college and career visits are scheduled throughout the school year through the College/Career Information Center. Interested students are able to meet with representatives from colleges, universities, vocational schools, the military, and various career fields. Students sign up for each visit through their Family Connection account (colleges tab - upcoming high school visit schedule). Visits are scheduled based on the admissions representative's calendar. These are valuable opportunities for students to meet with admissions counselors who will most likely be reviewing their applications during their senior year.
High School Visit Procedures:
Students can sign up for high school visits through their Family Connection account by following the instructions noted online for each visit. Students must follow the instructions on-screen and print the confirmation page for each visit. This confirmation page becomes their pass for requesting required teacher signatures.
Passes must be signed by the teacher whose class the student will be leaving and returning to.
Students are required to make up any work missed from any class missed.
Pass approval is at the discretion of NWHS staff.
Here's how to find out who is visiting your school:
High school visit schedules are announced each morning and run throughout the day on JAG TV.
Upcoming weekly visits are posted on the JAG College & Career Info Board just outside the College/Career Information Center.
