We know that many parents and students are interested in visiting colleges on their own. Juniors are given four days which count as field trips to make these school visits throughout the year. Juniors must print out the College Visit Form and get the required signatures from their teachers, counselor, and principal before they go on the trip in order for it to count as an excused absence. They must also get a signature from someone at the college during the visit and turn the completed form into the Lambert attendance office when they return. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your child's counselor.
In order to participate in college athletics and receive athletically based financial aid, you must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center and meet academic and amateurism eligibility standards. In order to register with the eligibility center, you must have a valid U.S. Social Security Number and pay a $60 eligibility center fee. Please visit the NCAA Eligibility website for more information.
Below is a list of steps to take during your senior year to make sure you are eligible to participate in college athletics.
- When taking the ACT or SAT, request test scores to be sent to the eligibility center (the code is " 9999 ").
- Complete amateurism questionnaire and sign the final authorization signature on-line on or after April 1 if you are expecting to enroll in college in the fall semester. (If you are expecting to enroll for spring semester, sign the final authorization signature on or after October 1 of the year prior to enrollment.)
