Greeting from the Counseling Office,
 
The college application process is in full swing. Seniors who are applying to 4-year universities should be working on their applications now. The University of California (UC) application cycle opens November 1st and all UC and California State University (CSU) applications must be submitted no later than November 30th. UC applications can be found at https://admissions.universityofcalifornia.edu/ and CSU applications are available on the new Cal State Apply website https://www2.calstate.edu/apply. Out of state schools and private universities often set their own application deadlines so make sure your senior has researched the schools they are interested in attending so they do not miss any deadlines. Students who plan to attend a community college next year will begin the application process in the spring. Underclassmen who would like information about postsecondary options are welcome to come by the Counseling Office anytime.
 
High school students who are interested in earning college credit while still in high school can take classes at Yuba College. The spring application is currently available online at yc.yccd.edu and the Schedule of Classes should be available in the next few weeks. In order to take classes students must complete the online application first. If planning to take English or math, students must complete the placement exam. They do NOT need to complete the online orientation, but will need paperwork from me in order to register. Concurrent high school students can begin registering for the spring semester on Monday, December 3rd. If you or your student would like more information about this process or need help, please let me know.
 
Congratulations to Noni Gibbs, the MCAA Student of the Quarter for 1st quarter! Each year the Marysville Exchange Club recognizes top seniors nominated by their high school. These students are selected for their academic record, involvement in school/community and leadership ability. Students and their families are invited to a luncheon where they receive a plaque and share a little bit about their accomplishments. All recipients are also encouraged to apply for the Youth of the Year scholarship which is the Exchange Club’s national scholarship program. Way to go Noni!
