Letter from the DDHS Career Center

Dear Class of 2020,

We are all heartbroken for you all! Know that the Career Center is here for you!

Our office — Mrs. Bluhm, Erin Lopez and me, Jen Charlton are here to help you navigate next steps. We may not always know the answers, but please reach out and ask! We can work through issues that come up together.

See below for those topics that we think might be pressing as we work together to get you through to the end of the year.

FAFSA

If you haven’t filed already, there is still time. If you need help, look on the Career Center website for instructions on how we can provide support and schedule a google hangout meetingDDHS Career Center

Scholarships

Local scholarships are in and listed on the Career Center site under scholarships. Be sure to look for these!! If you need someone to proofread or edit an application, share them with either Erin or Jen. Find our email contacts at the end of this message.

Transcripts for Scholarships or College Admissions

We are able to get copies of your official transcripts as needed.

College deadlines for admission and other

If you have already applied, the college you applied to should be contacting you regarding the next steps.

College Admissions if you haven’t applied

Some schools have extended their deadlines. Let us know what school you are planning to apply to and we can research information with you.

Interpreting College Award Letters

Please ask! We can help you!

Accepting Financial Aid/Grants/Loans

Please ask! We can help!

SAT/ACT

If you need your scores for college admissions, you may already have the college(s) listed on your account. If not, you can log into your account, College Board (SAT) or ACT and add the school to your account. I’m sure in some cases colleges will be lenient with how they receive this information. For instance, a screenshot of your score may suffice.

Additional Questions

If you have a question that wasn’t addressed above, please contact us. We are here to help.

Hang in there Seniors. What an amazing life story you will have to tell.

With Love & Support  – The Career Center Team
