4 Overview: What Do Colleges Consider When Evaluating a Candidate s Application? College Preparatory Courses & Performance: GPA At AIS-R, counselors help students create, execute and fulfill the requirements for successful university entry based on a 4 Year Plan. We aim to help students select the most challenging program in tandem with the strongest academic results possible. Starting in Grade 9, a student s Grade Point Average will begin at the end of semester 1. All courses taken in high school will be averaged into one s GPA each semester of high school. We encourage Juniors and Seniors to work as productively and consistently as you can to earn the best cumulative GPA that you are capable of achieving. Extracurricular Achievements Colleges are extremely interested in the kind of person you are in your community beyond the classroom. They want to know what you have contributed to the arts, athletics, student life and more. Colleges want Good Citizens and as such, it is important that our students build a range of experiences showing how they have emerged into becoming just such a citizen. Universities want to know that you have truly challenged yourself and that you have grown. The key here is not to aim for quantity but rather quality of experiences in extracurricular activities while maintaining the strongest academic performance possible. Be a Leader: In Your School, Your Community or as a Participant in an International Program Universities/colleges respect students who choose to be leaders. Consider initiating a club, a social project, an artistic performance, or run for student government. Universities are looking for young people who will continue on a pathway of leadership in university. There are many leadership styles: some require the spotlight while others do not. Find a way you can develop your skills and interests in a leadership capacity such that it suits you. Remember, being smart is a big part of university admissions, but in a competitive university environment, it is equally important to show skills in other areas of student life. Use Every Summer to Grow, Learn and Take-on New Experiences that are of Interest to Colleges & Universities Colleges are interested in understanding what kind of person you are. Summer activities are integral to this understanding. Therefore, AIS-R recommends that students use summer holidays to build-up skills and experiences that will help you be an appealing candidate to schools. Consider taking pre-college summer programs, leadership programs, college tours, sports programs, etc. Volunteer work and internships are also excellent opportunities for gaining new skills over the summer. Remember, paid summer employment is very important too. Create your portfolio or artistic supplement if you are applying to a university for visual or performing arts or other schools that are receptive to this info. Artistic supplements can showcase your skills, interests and creativity. Regardless of what you do, be sure to document your summer activities each year of high school. *Note: for more information on summer programs you can look on Grade 11 & Grade 12 Counseling Courses on Moodle Grade 11: A Strategic Year for College Preparation Q: What Should a Grade 11 Student Be Doing to Prepare & Embrace the College Application Process? Choose the most challenging and sustainable program in which you are capable of achieving the best grades possible. Write a succinct resume that categorizes your education, extracurricular activities, employment and awards for every year of high school. Build strong relationships with teachers in subjects that align with your university major or goals. These teachers will be the authority on which to recommend your skills and attest to your potential as a university candidate. Study hard for standardized tests. Take the SAT Prep course offered at AIS-R in 1st semester of your Junior year and take the SATs in January and May in the second semester (be sure to register with the Collegeboard using your passport name for the SATs). Participate in a balanced extracurricular program. Commit to excellent attendance at AIS-R. Junior Year Time line For College Applications: What Should You Do in Semester 1 & Semester 2?

5 Grade 12: A Strategic Year for College Preparation Q: What Should a Grade 12 Student Be Doing to Prepare & Embrace the College Application Process? Academic performance is the most important factor in tandem with the rigor of program. AIS-R Seniors are encouraged to take a challenging and sustainable course load in Grade 12 that aligns with your university goals. Demonstrate well-rounded participation in student life. Create a standardized test schedule to meet all college deadlines: register for every standardized test that you need for the universities you have selected (SAT Reasoning & SAT Subject Tests); we offer tests in Oct; Nov; and Dec; it is the student s responsibility to send all test scores to universities. Continue investigating colleges/universities for your list and work with your counselor to make sure you have the right combination of Reach, Target and Safety universities selected. SAT Dates at AIS-R are: October 5/13, November 2/13 and December 7/13 in Semester 1 and January 25/14 and May 3/14 in Semester 2.

7 Standardized Testing Universities assess students heavily against the rigor of one s high school program and GPA each year. However, standardized test scores are important because they allow colleges to compare student abilities nationally. While AIS-R s curriculum helps to prepare our students for tests, it is very important to supplement preparation with the SAT Prep course offered in semester one at AIS-R and to purchase SAT resources (SAT Reasoning Prep Books and SAT Subject Test books. (www. amazon.com has an excellent selection and they deliver quickly to Saudi Arabia). We recommend that all students create a SAT timeline to ensure all scores will reach universities by the deadline. International students are not permitted to register late. Therefore it is very important to meet all registration deadlines with the CollegeBoard for all SAT test dates. Students are responsible for knowing what tests are required by the colleges on their application list. Score Choice is the CollgeBoard s policy that allows students to send their scores to universities by test date for SAT Reasoning and by Subject Test scores for individual Juniors. If a student decides to not to use Score Choice, then all SAT and Subject Test scores will sent to the designated college. If a student chooses to use the 4 free score reports when you register, remember that you cannot view the test scores, or use Score Choice before you send them to colleges. (If you want a list of colleges that do not require standardized tests you can review them at: ). Additional Standardized Testing Information/Tools for College/University Searches All AIS-R Sophomores and Juniors will take the PSATs at AIS-R to prepare for the actual SAT test. All AIS-R students will receive the Official PSAT Score Report Plus which is a useful document that identifies strengths and weaknesses. Students can use this report to target their preparation. AIS-R students can use their PSAT codes to research and plan for college, research careers and colleges using My College QuickStart (https://quickstart.collegeboard.org/posweb/login.jsp) and MyRoad (https://myroad.collegeboard.com/myroad/navigator.jsp). Both are excellent college planning and research tools that can be accessed on the Grade 11 and Grade 12 Counseling Courses on Moodle. Students and parents can conduct information college searches and career planning on Family Connection by Naviance as well. Log into: on the Grade 11/12 Counseling Courses on Moodle or Skyward. SATs Sign-Ups at AIS-R: *ATTENTION: ALL AIS-R Students Must Register for the SATs using his/her PASSPORT NAME we recommend that Seniors take the SATs on Oct. 5/13; Nov. 2/13 and Dec. 7/13 (Seniors should review continuously to earn the highest scores possible -- make the experience worthwhile) remember, on any SAT Test Date, you can take SAT Reasoning or SAT Subject Tests (students are responsible for knowing what SAT Subject Tests universities require; you are permitted to take up to 3 SAT Subject Tests in one day & they are 60 minutes in length) we recommend that Seniors take the SAT Subject Tests in Oct; Nov. and Dec. in the first semester depending on university deadlines or the SAT Reasoning Tests in October; November and December, with the goal of earning the highest scores possible students are responsible for researching university deadlines & ensuring that SAT scores can reach these institutions by their application deadline in their Senior Year (the big deadline for US universities is Dec. 31st/Jan 1st) students must sign-up for the SATs to meet all university deadlines and requirements we strongly encourage students to study continuously over the first semester to earn the highest scores possible Where do you sign-up? Here at: What AIS-R Codes do I need to register online? 1) the 6-Digit AIS-R CEEB CODE: & 2) the 5-Digit AIS-R Test Center Code: 52790; pay directly online using a parent's credit card What do I bring on the SAT Test Date at AIS-R: your printed Web Registration Ticket; a calculator (back-up batteries); acceptable ID AIS-R Test Dates for : Please Note there are NO LATE Registrations for International Students Test Date: Oct. 5/2013 (TBA) Test Date: Nov. 2/2013 (TBA) Test Date: Dec. 7/2013 (TBA) Test Date: Jan. 25/2014 (TBA) Test Date: May 3/2014 (TBA) Q: Do You Need to take the TOEFL Test? You can register online & pay by credit card at: Researching Colleges At AIS-R we believe students should select universities based on academics, clubs, facilities, and additional personal preferences. We recommend that students research very carefully on Family Connection by Naviance (at: and MyRoad and BigFuture for American universities in particular as there are over 3500 to choose from in the USA alone. Students who choose selective universities must ensure they meet all admissions criteria. You will find useful links for this info on Moodle. AIS-R students can access Family Connection on the Grade 11/12 Counseling Courses on Moodle or Skyward. You simply login into Family Connection using your Skyward username and passwords (codes are sent to the parents of Juniors and Seniors which you will use to create a username/password). Do You Want a College or a University? Generally, universities offer graduate programs and colleges do not. Students who prefer a smaller learning environment may benefit from attending a college. Classes are discussion-based. However, it you want choices from a big list of courses, you may want a university. Do You Have a Major in Mind? Or, are You Undecided? Student select majors with a specific academic discipline focus. Programs typically require a specific series of courses that will be applied to the requirements of a university major. If you are unsure of your major, then you can indicate undecided.

8 Visiting Colleges: Do You Need to See the Campus? A campus tour is one of the best ways to help students get a sense of the best fit campus. An excellent time to take university tours is the summer before your Senior year. Brainstorm a list of relevant questions to ask college representatives based on what is important to you. Have a look at these suggestions: 1. What is the composition of the student body? 2. What are your most notable clubs, teams, activities, etc.? 3. Can you explain dining options on campus? 4. Can you explain housing options on campus? 5. Does the campus have a fitness center? 6. Does the campus have wireless internet available? 7. Is the neighborhood safe? 8. What percentage of students graduate in 4 years? 5 years? 9. How many students are in the average first year class? 10. Does the university offer merit-based scholarships? After the Visit: It is important to express interest and maintain appropriate communication. Be sure to send an inquiry of any follow-up questions that are important to you. If you had an interview follow-up with a brief thank-you by . It is always a good idea to request information and have it sent in the mail. Universities typically allow you to do this by mail. If this university visits AIS-R, then attend the information session. Have you taken advantage of every opportunity to learn about this college? AIS-R Application Policies: Researching and Evaluating Your College List The college application process is demanding. However, anxiety can be greatly reduced by conducting thorough research, arranging for standardized tests, completing applications and doing so with full awareness of university deadlines. Students are responsible for choosing 8 to 10 universities that represent the best fit for your academic and extracurricular goals. 1. Strong Achievement is the Goal: maintain strong academic performance in your college preparatory courses. Students will become very busy and it is important to perform well academically at all points in grade Reach, Target, Safety: A Logical Plan and Balanced List Students are required to apply to a combination of reach, target and safety schools (8 to 10 applications). We encourage high quality applications to ensure students increase their chances of success. Toward this end, all Seniors must follow all AIS-R deadlines for the application process with his or her counselor. Students must responsibly compile a list based on sound research and alignment of one s academic profile and university admission requirements. We strongly recommend that AIS-R students consider applying to one extreme reach school only as the pool of admitted students to such selective institutions continues to decline. 3. Meeting AIS-R Deadlines and University Deadlines: Regular Decision to American Universities is typically January 1 st. Decisions from universities arrive by March through to April 1 st. Students who follow the Reach, Target, Safety formula typically find that Regular Decision gives them the best opportunity for admittance. Rolling Admissions is used by many universities in the USA and beyond in which applications are reviewed as soon as they are complete. Universities with rolling admissions begin accepting applicants in the fall and continue past the Regular Decision deadline. Early Decision applications to American universities present a binding agreement if the candidate is admitted. The deadline is typically November 1 or mid-november. This application pathway is mostsuited to students who excel academically and have completed all standardized tests to meet admissions criteria and deadlines. Early Action applications to American universities are a non-binding agreement if the applicant is admitted. This is suitable for students who want an earlier decision on admittance and can meet application deadlines. 4. Quality, not Quantity: Keep your perspective on quality not quantity when applying to university. Students should aim for completing applications and making the necessary arrangements to obtain teacher and counselor recommendations and college essays. Thorough research, well-matched credentials to admissions criteria, self-reflection and punctuality will make the process highly rewarding. General Steps Once Your College List is Finalized: 1. Apply Online: and pay the application fee online before the deadline. Print a hard copy. 2. Complete Hard Copy Items: for teacher and counselor recommendations. Follow-up with your counselor to ensure they have been received and are in your file. (Teacher Evaluation and Secondary School Report on the Common Application will be uploaded electronically). 3. If you Attended More than one High School: you must give 1 sealed transcript to your counselor for each application outside/off of the Common Application. 4. Students Arrange for SAT Scores and TOEFL Scores: to be sent directly from the CollegeBoard and ETS. 5. Common Application: this typically becomes available in late July for incoming Seniors. Students create an account and begin filling-in all required fields. We strongly encourage incoming Seniors to start their college essays in the summer (or sooner). There are 5 choices of essays on the Common Application. 6. College Essays and Personal Statements: students should access our suggestions on the Counseling Courses on Moodle to write effective essays and personal statements. While a great essay is no guarantee of admittance a weak composition will most certainly result in elimination. Spend time brain storming, crafting and editing your essay on the Common Application and supplemental essays. 7. Arrange for Recommendations: give Student Info Sheet to teachers writing your recommendations and the Counselor Info Sheet to your counselor. Ensure you give teachers 2 weeks for completion and your counselor one week for completion. 8. Counselor Appointments: courier documents such as transcripts, recommendations, and additional items to universities from the AIS-R campus. Decisions from Colleges -- Review all of these General Guidelines Below: Carefully consider acceptances and decide on ONE college Pay deposit in order to hold a spot Do not double deposit as it is unethical and should never be done If a student is on the waitlist in the Regular Decision round, he/she should contact the admissions office to express continued interest in the school Waitlist activity is unpredictable; therefore, it is critical that a student accept his/her most appealing offer of admission and pay a deposit by May 1 st deadline If a student is later accepted off the waitlist of their top choice school he/she may contact the original college to request they be released from their enrollment Most enrollment deposits are non-refundable Deferring college enrollment: you can put your offer on hold for one year after you pay the deposit at most colleges Reporting disciplinary incidents to colleges: AIS-R will respond to inquiries from colleges about discipline Colleges have the right to rescind offers of admission and may do so if a student s academic record or disciplinary record changes negatively Students are responsible for sending their final AIS-R transcripts/ib transcripts to universities in June

9 Financial Matters With the cost of a university education increasing every year, it is very important to research financial aid options. Financial aid comes in 3 main ways: 1) as scholarships 2) loans or 3) work-study. Financial aid can be based on the degree of need and this is typically available to American citizens and those with a green card. If you are an international student (non U.S. citizen), you can research options that are available with the International Education Financial Aid Center (IEFA.org). General Steps for Financial Assistance: 1. FAFSA: Free Application for Federal Aid available online and updated every Jan. 1 st and all applicants must meet deadlines; for details go to: 2. PINS: applicants and 1 parent will obtain a personal ID number called a pin 3. College Scholarship Service: many private colleges require the CSS Profile form in addition to FAFSA; you can register at: https://profileonline.collegeboard.com 4. Eligibility: once the FAFSA form is submitted, the family will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR is a summary of information entered on the FAFSA and it indicates how much a family is expected to pay for college. Some colleges may be need blind for a portion of their application, but not the entire pool. If you want and estimate of eligibility you can visit: 5. Recommended Financial Aid Books: The Financial Aid Book: The Insider's Guide to Private Scholarships, Grants, and Fellowships; Getting Financial Aid 2014: College Board Guide to Getting Financial Aid; Scholarship Handbook 2014: College Board Scholarship Handbook; College Financial Aid for Dummies Note: funding is very limited to non-u.s. citizens. If an international student receives financial aid, it must be from a college s own funds.
