MANDEVILLE HIGH SCHOOL
#1 SKIPPER DRIVE
MANDEVILLE, LA 70447
Seniors may use the Common App (www.commonapp.org) to use one application to apply to more than 1,000 schools. In our area, LSU, UNO, Tulane, Loyola, Xavier, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Mississippi
State, Millsaps all use the Common App.
There are hundreds more, including Auburn, Alabama, Spring Hill, South Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Arkansas, and College of Charleston. Applying through the Common App allows us to send records electronically, which eases the application process. When applying to a school, please check to see if they're on the Common Application. It makes things a lot easier!
SENDING TEST SCORES & TRANSCRIPTS
Students may request a paper transcript from Mrs. Howard, the registrar, in the guidance office. She has a request form at her desk. We cannot accept requests for transcripts by phone or email. Each transcript is $1 and will be mailed to the college or university you indicate. We do not send test scores (ACT). For the score to be official, it must be sent from ACT
directly to the college or university. ACT has endorsed superscoring, which allows a student to use his or her best score from each of the four (4) sub-sections to create a "superscore" composite score. It's up to each college or university to determine if they'll accept a superscore. TOPS does not currently allow for a superscore to be used.
Completing the FAFSA or signing a waiver indicating that you will not complete a
FAFSA is a graduation requirement for the class of 2023. The FAFSA for the class of
2023 will become available on October 1st. Please make sure to complete
the 2023-2024 FAFSA since that will be the first year of college for our seniors.
Our students have the opportunity to take AP tests in a number of subjects and potentially earn college credit at
a fraction of the cost for a three-hour course. Registration for the AP tests is in the fall! Students may

AP College Board

Western Civilizations:1648 to Present (World History or World History Honors), Psychology, Spanish Language (Spanish III), or French Language (French III or IV). Mrs. Courtney Weileman is the CLEP coordinator. Sign-up deadlines to test
at MHS will be advertised later in the year.
