Tift County High School is excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Georgia Apply to College Day event. Our event will be held on .
During our Georgia Apply to College Day, all of our seniors will be given the opportunity to apply to college using GAcollege411.org, Georgia’s online resource for planning, applying and paying for college. Volunteers, from ABAC and SRTC as well as TCHS, will be on hand to assist students as they work on their application(s) for college admission. In preparation for the event, your student will be asked to sign up in Guidance for a time to apply and complete college research to ensure they have a college in mind that will be a good match for them. In addition, students will be asked to gather the information that they will need to complete an application forcollege admission and may need your assistance. This information may include the following:
- Social Security Number
- Place of birth
- Residency information, such as tax, employment, driver’s license information
- Citizenship information
- Immediate family military information
- Previous high school information
Students may either submit their application(s) during the event or save it to submit at a later time. On the day of our event, we will encourage students who do not have access to a payment method at school to save their application to submit at home, if possible. As another option, in the past, some students have elected to purchase a prepaid gift card, such as a Visa gift card, in an amount sufficient to cover their application fee and to bring that to school. Students who may qualify for an application fee waiver, such as the CollegeBoard or ACT fee waiver, should see Mrs. Couch, in the Guidancce Office, prior to the event to obtain the necessary paperwork. If you should have any questions regarding this exciting program, please do not hesitate to call Tara Miller at 229-387-2475.
Thank you in advance for your support of this initiative to make college a part of your student’s future!
