D29 Electronic Submission: What Works for Us

1,512 views

Published on

Come learn how we have tweaked our college counseling programs from registering students on Naviance as sophomores, training them as juniors, going through the application process as seniors, submitting transcripts electronically, and training teachers on submitting letters of recommendation electronically.We plan to spend half of our time discussing programming prior to senior year and the other half discussing eDocs/electronic submission. A program timeline, Naviance training documents for students AND teachers, and application forms will be provided.

  • Bios for Kari…Kendall: This is Kendall’s 5th year as a College Counselor at Benet Academy. Prior to that, she worked for two years as a College Counselor for a pre-K through 12 day school in Tulsa, OK and spent two years as the Asst. Director of Admission for DePauw University. Tom:Amy:This is Amy’s 12th year as a College Counselor at Benet Academy. Prior to that, she was in Admissions for 4 years – 1 year at MacMurray College and then 3 years at Bradley University.
  • Difference between transcript requests and applications: NavianceAll electronic applications with a few rare exceptions for paper applicationsWe submitted nothing electronically this past year. All 7500 were mailed as were mid year and 1015 final transcripts.
  • Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors work with a generalist counselor at Benet, but junior year they also start working with their respective College Counselor. We’re kind of their “Bonus Counselor” junior year. If students have personal issues that they’re working through, they may continue with their generalist counselor through senior year as well, but they will also work with their college counselor for all things college related. Even though we “only” have 110 seniors to work with, we do write letters of recommendation for nearly all of them b/c 99% will attend a 4 year college.
  • We’ve been using Naviance for 10 years now. This was our 3rd year for sending electronic transcripts. After the first year, we felt pretty comfortable with the process and got our teachers on board, so this was their 2nd year to submit letters electronically. It’s not required, and we do have some teachers who prefer to send everything in the mail. But the vast majority of teachers use Naviance and LOVE it. And if our English teacher who just retired after 52 years of teaching can learn how to do it… so can you! 130 snail mail… colleges that don’t yet accept electronic transcriptsMidyears… we only send midyear transcripts upon the student’s request. 7 Snail Mail. Most amazing… teacher usage.
  • Freshmen year is a time for our first year students to get acclimated. Their transition to Benet academically and socially, is of greater importance than beginning their college search. That being said, freshmen AND sophomores will receive information regarding planning ahead for college through our quarterly newsletter. We register our sophomores in the spring and our primary purpose in doing so is simply to get the ball rolling. It’s an opportunity for them to start getting familiar with Naviance and the many ways in which they will use it in the months/years to come. “Training notes” that highlight various features of naviance are provided but there is no expectation that they will know naviance backwards and forwards by the time they begin their junior year.
  • In the fall, we will take an entire class period to re-introduce the Juniors to Naviance and explain in depth the ways in which they’ll use the resource over the next two years. The other programming we offer to our juniors is pretty standard as you can see but there are a couple of things I’d like to point out:2nd semester is when we will begin meeting with the juniors in our case load on an individual basis. In order to make their initial appointment with us, they have to turn in three items: Questionnaire (Naviance), Resume (Naviance), Parent Questionnaire. Once they hand in all three items, they schedule their appointment with us. We meet only with students. For us, this is a very student-centered process. We are confident in the programming we offer to parents and make clear that they are always welcome to call or email as needed throughout the college search and application process. Coffee with the College Counselors has been awesome! Super well received. Type up all of the questions that are asked in addition to our answers (obviously) and then send them out to all junior parents so as not to miss those that couldn’t attend.
  • Seniors are not required to meet with us again in the fall of their senior year, but they are welcome to make an appointment any time. Most recent program additions include Coffee with the College Counselors (again, HUGE success), Alumni Panel (representation from all different types of schools), and Perfecting the College Interview (v. well received)
  • Last year our rep from BC, Kristen O’ Callahan, led an after school session for our teachers. Not sure if it’s something that we’ll do every year or every other year, but it was very well received.
  • As Kendall mentioned, we meet with seniors at the beginning of the year for Application Workshops. At that time, we help them understand their 5 step process: how to apply, sending test scores, requesting teacher letters of recommendation, requesting transcripts, and where to find the appropriate forms. We meet with classes in the computer labs, so they log on to their Naviance account and fill out their FERPA agreement – must have common app username and password – do that, too. FERPA – we require them to waive their rights. The thought being, in the words of our very wise Saint Ignatius friends, “either you trust us or you don’t”. If you don’t, then we should not be the ones writing your recommendation. Our job to support them and their application… we WANT to help them, etc.
  • Once the kids are settled with FERPA and have their TRF’s, they are ready to apply to college! From OUR perspective, even before we’ve met with the kids, I’ll start uploading transcripts into Naviance. Advance ppt *Once 1 is done, it’s done. So procedurally, we really start with step 2 every time a student applies to a college. They hand-deliver their TRF, then we go through steps 2-7.
  • PerNaviance’s instructions, I was able to install the ‘printer’ on my computer. But certainly your tech person could do this for you. And once it’s done, it’s done. You can replace a transcript once it’s been uploaded – in case of any scheduling changesYou can also add transfer transcripts, and submit altogether
  • #2 – key step in the process of how we submit their transcriptWhen the student brings in their TRF, the first thing I note is whether they used the Common App or school specific application. And then I double check with them to make sure that’s really what they did or plan to do. If they haven’t actually started it yet, they just PLAN to, I make sure they know the importance of doing what they told me. Or if they change their mind, the importance of telling me that. Here’s why it’s so important: If they circle Common App, their transcript will be sent to their common app account, match to their application, and download at the university. If they circle School Specific, their transcript will be sent directly to the university. So if they say common app, but really use the school specific, then their transcript will sit at common app waiting for an application and never get downloaded by the school. Also note self-reported gradesAlso note the letter of recommendation requirement… we’ll talk more about that later.
  • #3 – WE add the college, NOT the studentStudent brings in TRF and we add the colleges listed on it to theirNote: CA, CA, postage stamp and computer icon
  • #4 – CA or NACACWe NEVER send school specific forms and have NEVER had any trouble. Georgetown is the only exception.Note FERPA Compliance at the top.
  • NO MORE PHOTOCOPYING THE CA SSR!!!!
  • Fill out CA or NACAC one time and done!
  • #5 – upload my letter of recCan designate which college letter gets sent to OR have same letter sent to all colleges
  • #6 – click a few boxes to submitCommon App – SSR, letter, transcript & profile auto ‘bundled’School Specific – check each box of the documents you want to submitYou CAN read and submit teacher letters, but we do not… we’ll get to that.
  • Review of the boxes you checked
  • #7 – check milestones to make record of itCheck and balance for us, but particularly helpful to students… (next slide)We can view the date on which materials were submitted. Students can NOT.
  • No dates!
  • Again, only sent 130 snail mail last fall and 7 midyears. Just print the SSR & letter of rec from Naviance instead of submitting them.
  • Administrative Assistant:TRF – Electronic – goes to edocs Submission Status to verify submission. Occasional “Fail” status, so she lets us know to re-submit.Then clicks “Submitted” on Milestones, so we know that transcript is done and done! TRF – Mail – SSR & Letter, adds transcript & Profile, and mailsMilestones – Submitted – done and done!
  • Historically, for every application that was submitted, we sent a midyear transcript. That was a lot of mail. Currently, we send a midyear transcript ONLY upon student request. We used to send about 2,000… now we send about 400 (only 8 of which were mailed this year ). Not surprisingly, we have a form for that… we call it the Midyear Transcript Request Form, which I will show it to you just a bit. We meet with seniors during their homeroom period to give them the lowdown on how to complete the midyear transcript request form and to provide them with some guidelines as to whom they should be sending a midyear transcript to.
  • We meet with all of our seniors during homeroom the last week of April to gather final statistics on where they were accepted/denied/waitlisted/incomplete. To help us gather that information, we use an “End of the Year Survey” that is specific to each student and that we print off of Naviance. The survey is also designed to allow us to collect scholarship information and obtain a signature from our students, signing off on where they would like their final transcript to be sent. We send final transcripts by MAIL. We have found that it is easier and more efficient to print off all the final transcripts for our students, divvy them up by college, then batch mail the transcripts to each individual college. For example, we can send 32 final transcripts to U of I in the same envelope vs. uploading 32 transcripts individually then sending those 32 transcripts one by one to U of I.
  • * This is how we gather information for Naviance data
  • Historically, we used to require our students to provide their teacher(s) with a list of all of the schools they were applying to along with the deadline by which the teacher letter needed to be sent. Two problems resulted from this tactic: 1) If a student had one Nov. 1st deadline, they would simply tell the teacher that ALL the schools had a Nov. 1st deadline even though that was not entirely accurate.2) Students would write down colleges to which they THOUGHT they were going to apply then weeks down the road, they would choose not to apply there. 3) Teachers would have to constantly refer back to the original paper work to check when/if a college had been added to Naviance, confirm they weren’t missing deadlines and to ultimately re-submit their letter to new colleges.
  • Domino effect… Student -> Counselor -> Teacher Responsibilities
  • Teachers are responsible for sending their letters and for verifying their submission status. We do not review teacher letters or send letters on a teacher’s behalf. The submission process for teachers is very comparable to the counselor submission process.
  • D29 Electronic Submission: What Works for Us

New Trier Teachers September:  Common Application Refresher Training: How to upload and submit letters of recommendation electronically (in computer labs/during teachers free periods) Students Requirements: Must manage the entire recommendation process with their respective teachers, including providing all required forms, (stamped and addressed envelopes if not electronic), deadlines, schools, etc. October:  “Don’t Get Wrecked Writing Letters of Recommendation” (during teachers free periods, open to all teachers, experienced and/or new to the recommendation letter writing process)
    8. 8. Submitting Midyear & Final Transcripts Midyear Transcripts:  Midyear transcripts automatically prepared and mailed  Batch mailing by college(all transcript requests to Miami University will go out in two-three envelopes)  Midyear Report is not submitted  Two week process (confirming requests in Naviance, registrar prints transcripts, phsc department assistants prepare envelopes and labels, then snail-mailed)  Any transcript errors (late grades, misreported grades) have to be hand pulled, corrected and sent out separately. Final Transcripts:  Print all transcripts  Batch by college  Snail Mail
    9. 9. Processing from the Counselor Perspective 1. Currently transcript is printed and mailed Student hand- along with SSR, counselor delivers Transcript recommendation, & school profileRequest Form (TRF) (copying, postage and longer advance timeline)*Required in order to 2. Naviance records all transcript requests, butmaintain face-to-face does not necessarily indicate applications interaction, collect accurately transcript fees, and 3. Counselor records need to match with front desk records (front desk – counselor – accurate data input registrar – back to front desk – counselor – for Naviance mailed) 4. Very counseling heavy and one to one communication with processing 5. No uploading of any kind for counselors 6. Teacher Recommendations are student’s responsibility and student managed
    10. 10. Considerations For New Trier Going Electronic Submit Transcripts, SSR and Profile online Retain autonomy of the transcript process (no outside vendors) Retain the transcript request process and one-on-one counseling priority Upload School Profile Not affect the current teacher recommendation process (student initiated and managed) Restructure the transcript fees Collaboration with Information Technology Updates and changes to transcripts mid-cycle
    11. 11. How Will It Look Transcripts will be submitted through common app via pdf attachment. SSR will require one-time completion and be available to whichever school a student applies to once completed Students will be required to complete a transcript request for every school, but will be color-coded (one for common app and one for non-common app) Upload School Profile Retain the one-to-one counseling relationships for a senior case load of 125 Teacher recommendation process remains as is(student initiated and managed) Restructure the transcript fees (still in discussion) Information Technology batch release of PDF’s to respective counselors by advisory assignment Updates and changes to transcripts mid-cycle: PDF upload.
    12. 12. What Will It Change? More efficient use of time (counseling students, writing recommendations and conducting programming, rather than processing papers, copying and filling out forms) More accurate and timely information More efficient mid-year transcript process Increase the face time with senior students and families New fee structure will need to be implemented With access to transcripts, there should be more autonomy for the counselor from the registrar Increase communication with Information Technology 75% electronic and 25% snail mail with little or no change to our counseling programs

    36. 36. The Teacher Letter of Recommendation Conundrum Myth: Every college requires two teacher letters of recommendation  340 students applying to college x 2 teacher letters of recommendation = a LOT of unnecessary letter writing  Unnecessary letter writing = disgruntled faculty! Solution: the Teacher Recommendation Request Form (TRRF) Result:  Fewer teacher letters  Better quality of letters  Stronger relationship between Teacher and Counselor
