Dual Credit information:

If you have a balance due to a college, please get that paid promptly as your child will not be able to secure a college transcript until his/her balance is cleared.  Also, bills are emailed to the student’s email that he/she used when registering for the class for SCC.  Paper statements are NOT mailed to the parents for SCC, but they are emailed and mailed from Peru State.  Contact Mrs. Stuhr if you have questions!

TUITION to SCC was due by 3-21-22.  Payments to SCC can be made online through the student portal account OR mailing a check.  TUITION to PERU was due by 4-1-22. The address is Peru State College, Box 10, Peru, NE  68421.  Be sure to note the student’s first and last name in the subject line.

York is NOT hosting ACT testing..  Geneva and Seward may be hosting sites as well as other locations.

STUDENTS REGISTERING TO TAKE THE ACT … Please remember to enter the York High School code of 282-590 when testing.  This is the only way YHS gets a copy of your test results, and we NEED them.  If questions, stop by the Counseling office.

 

Amanda from EducationQuest is scheduling appointments for college planning and FAFSA completion.  Mrs. Stuhr in the Counseling office will be glad to get you scheduled if you give her a call or your student stops in her office. They are 40-minute appointments and this service is FREE!  The FAFSA application opened Oct. 1, and is very important for college financial aid and scholarships.  She will continue to help with FAFSA completions and college questions during second semester, but her appointments will be virtual.  Upcoming date include: Apr 29.
