UCD series helps seniors with college application process

From page A3 | September 20, 2012 |

The UC Davis School of Education is offering courses designed to prepare high school seniors for the college application process.

“We want to take the stress out of this high-anxiety process,” said Andee Press-Dawson, director of community programs and events at the school. “It’s not just about applying to UC Davis, it’s about applying to any public or private universities.”

Four sessions will be offered now through November:

* “Understanding Admission Factors/Exploring College Options” will meet Saturday, Sept. 29. It covers admission tests such as the SATs, letters of recommendation, personal statements and extracurricular activities;

* “Get Organized and Apply” will meet Saturday, Oct. 13. High school students registered in the course will get started on application forms with experienced guidance;

* “Develop a Financial Plan” will meet Saturday, Oct. 27. Students will learn about financial aid, various college costs and scholarships; and

* “A Personalized Final Review of Your Application” is a bonus session on Saturday, Nov. 3. It offers each student a personal meeting with the course instructor to review completed applications.

Each session will be taught by Lynne de Bie, a recently retired counselor and teacher.

“She has been an instructor with UC Davis Extension College Admissions Advising Certificate Program, an admissions reader for UC Davis and UC Berkeley, and a commissioner appointed to the California Student Aid Commission,” Press-Dawson said in a news release.

The class fee is $175 and all classes will be held in Room 261 in the UC Davis School of Education building at First and A streets.
