Here is where you list courses taken through SPCC.
Note: You report your senior year classes here, since they are not included on your official transcript.
Test Scores
Class Rank & GPA
This is why it's a good idea to keep a list of your accomplishments. You can make a list in CFNC.org under My Profile.
Note that the instructions say: "principal" activities and "in order of importance".
This is where you report any discipline issue- in or outside of school.
If these questions had to be answered TODAY, how would you stack up?
What can you do NOW and in the future to improve your ratings by SENIOR year?
*Another reason to be honest on YOUR part of the application!
This form is used to report at mid-year the SENIORS' semester grades, and any changes to the original Counselor Evaluation.
This form is sent at the END of SENIOR year WITH the final transcript to report changes in GPA, class rank, discipline record,etc.
Now, list as many components as you can think of that are part of a College Application.
Information about YOU (contact information, future plans, demographics)
Information about your FAMILY (parents/siblings and their college history)
SAT/ACT scores (and other standardized tests)
Honors & Distinctions
Extracurricular activities (clubs, athletics, work)
Discipline Issues
Teacher Evaluation(s)
Counselor Reports (at application time, mid-year and final)

Some students have a background or story that is so central to their identity that they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure. How did it affect you, and what lessons did you learn?
Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea. What prompted you to act? Would you make the same decision again?
Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content. What do you do or experience there, and why is it meaningful to you?
Discuss an accomplishment or event, formal or informal, that marked your transition from childhood to adulthood within your culture, community, or family.
