ADD/DROP Course Request Change for 2016-2017 Schedule

Please use the link on the Counseling Center webpage to submit a course request change for the 2016-2017 school year. Students can view course requests in SAM. Please allow 6 school days to process this request. 

All changes must be submitted by July 7, 2016. You may use this link to 

submit requests to add and/or drop a course; however, final course placement 

is based upon course prerequisites and course availability. You must check 

the course prerequisites and your final grades in SAM at the end of this school

year. If the prerequisite is not met and you wish to remain in the course, you 

must complete the Grade Prerequisite Waiver Agreement by July 7, 2016. 

Please contact the Counseling Center with questions.



Counseling Center Summer Hours

During the summer break, please note the changes in hours and operation of the Counseling Center from June 20th - August 22nd. During this time, there is usually one counselor and one support staff member to respond to all of our students/parents. Counselors rotate throughout the summer working Monday through Thursday from 8 to 3 for most of the weeks. All district buildings are closed on Fridays as part of an energy savings plan. Please note that the counselor's main role is to register new students, assist students who failed courses to find remedial credit options, and to discuss course changes/waiver options. We appreciate your patience since it is not feasible to respond to phone calls with the same efficiency as during the school year. Any college application request will be addressed after the school year starts and not before.



Attention Seniors: Final transcripts will be sent to the attending college students listed on their senior survey. If a student did not complete this question on the survey, he/she needs to communicate to their counselor which college he/she plans to attend in the fall. If the attending college does not accept electronic transcripts, noted as the delivery type in Naviance, it is the student's responsibility to provide a stamp, addressed envelope to the Counseling Center with the student's name on the inside front flap so their transcript can be mailed.



Our annual Financial Aid Night will be held on Wednesday, September 28 at 6PM. It is earlier this year because of a major change in the 2017-18 FAFSA. UHS Class of 2017 will file the FAFSA with Prior-Prior Year (2015) income tax information starting with the 2017-18 FAFSA. This impacts students who are currently juniors (graduating in 2017) and beyond. The process will enable students to file their FAFSA earlier (after October 1, 2016) and with more accurate information (no need to estimate taxes anymore). Students will be able to receive earlier notification of their financial aid eligibility and, hopefully, make better decisions regarding the affordability of their final school choice.
