June 15, 2014

Finalizing 2014-15 Course Schedules

Students will be able to view their tentative 2014-15 class schedules at 3:45 pm today (6/11) by logging into their Power School accounts.  Note that these schedules are tentative.

Counselors are currently adjusting 2014-15 course schedules as they respond to students requests (to add and/or drop classes), teacher recommendations, course prerequisites, and changes in the master schedule.  To date, a few changes have been made in the past week to the master schedule and this has prompted changes in some student schedules as well.  In virtually every instance, changes in student schedules resulting from adjustments in the master schedule have simply altered the sequence of courses in the daily schedule (meaning that a class that originally appeared in the B period time slot, for example, may now be in the H period time slot).
Students may still request changes through the end of this school year and should contact their counselors ASAP if they wish to do so.  Any change made after June 20 will be due to failing final grades in current courses or failure to meet prerequisites in courses scheduled for 2014-15.

Counselors will be available sporadically during the summer and will return on Thursday, August 21st.  Students are encouraged to contact their counselors regarding this availability.

ECE and On-Campus Course Registration

The final date on which students may submit online applications for Early College Experience courses to UConn has passed.  At this point, students who are scheduled to take ECE courses at EOSHS in 2014-15 and who have not submitted their applications will need to register in early September through the add/drop process in order to be eligible to earn free college credits.  More information on this will be available at the start of the school year.
Doing neither will result in a lost opportunity.
As for on-campus registration, students interested in taking a course on campus should bring their completed registration forms to the Guidance Office by June 19.

For Graduating Seniors

Mailing Final Transcripts to Colleges

Students moving on to higher education should expect their final EOS transcripts to be mailed in early July.  It's during the first week of July that the EOS Guidance Department hopes to have transcripts available for mailing. 
If seniors have not already informed the Guidance Department where they will be attending school in 2014-15, they'll need to do so immediately.  Without this information, the Guidance Department will be unable to mail the transcript, the final and necessary step in the matriculation process.
