Testing Registration and Reporting

  1. Make an appointment to see your counselor to go over your transcript and discuss your college application process.
  2. All students must have an e-mail address. If you do not have one, get one now.
  3. Each application must have a TZ transcript request form.
  4. Our CEEB code is: 334515
    Our Tappan Zee test center code is: 33-736
    These numbers must be included when you register for your SAT. Our Tappan Zee test center code for ACT is 219300.
  5. Please tell your counselor immediately if you are applying Early Action/Early Decision to any college.
  6. No test scores will be sent from the Guidance Department. You must contact www.collegeboard.com for your SAT and/or ACT scores (www.actstudent.org).
  7. Start checking your email daily for messages from the colleges. Read all e-mail from colleges where you have applied. They might need something from you, and this is the only way they will contact you.
  8. After you have applied to a college, e-mail or call them in about three weeks to make sure you application is complete. THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. You could get deferred or denied because the college is missing an important piece of information.
  9. If you are applying for financial aid check each college website for which financial aid forms they require. All colleges require FAFSA (www.FAFSA.ed.gov), but some will want the CSS profile in addition to that. Check deadlines carefully. If you do not understand the financial aid process for each of your colleges, you could disqualify yourself and lose a lot of money.
  10. Make sure you understand each colleges Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) rules and deadlines. This information can be found on the Common Application.
  11. The college process is ruled by deadlines. Sending your application(s) early to many colleges can be very beneficial. Do all SUNY and Out of State, state colleges first. This can be very helpful to you.
  12. We are sending your college documents electronically through Naviance. The system will not allow us to do this, unless you have sent your application to the college first. It’s more important than ever to move through sending your applications quickly and carefully.
