PIQ SESSION (1:00-3:30)

README: This PIQ workshop spans the ENTIRE AFTERNOON. Due to the content and structure, interested counselors should plan to attend from 1:00 to 3:30 pm. No latecomers.

Personal Insight Questions: The Stages of Writing

By now many of you have heard about the NEW Personal Insight Questions. Join us to review best practices and strategies on HOW to support students throughout the writing process from brainstorming to finalizing.

SESSION A (1:00-2:15)

A1 | The Freshman Admissions Cycle: Start to Finish (repeats as B5)

An overview of the application cycle month by month. We will highlight both what the student experiences each month as well as what is happening "behind the scenes" in the admissions office.

A2 | Advising Prospective Student Athletes for UC

This session will provide an overview of the UC Admission policy for student athletes, recruitment practices, key points regarding NAIA and NCAA compliance, and differences between UC campuses regarding athletic processes.

A3 | What High School Counselors Need to Know about Financial Aid

Paying for an education can be viewed as an intimidating task. This presentation will demonstrate how students can finance a UC education and debunks the myth that it is financially beyond reach.

SESSION B (2:30-3:30)

B4 | Freshman Admission 101: The Basics for New Counselors

A review of freshman admission policies and practices, the new SAT, personal insight questions along with useful tools for counselors when advising students.

B5 | The Freshman Admissions Cycle: Start to Finish (repeat of A1)

An overview of the application cycle month by month. We will highlight both what the student experiences each month as well as what is happening "behind the scenes" in the admissions office.

B6 | Q&A with Senior Evaluators

We’ll provide answers to frequently asked questions on common topics and take your pressing “I always want to ask” specific questions and provide you with thorough answers. Our goal is to give you “ah ha!” moments and have you leave this session knowing more than you did when you arrived.
