Connect with Colleges

The College Office has compiled a list of college connection opportunities that colleges and universities have shared with us. This includes:

  • evening presentations from traveling college representatives in the Seattle area 
  • virtual opportunities to engage with admissions representatives, such as information sessions and interviews
  • on-campus in-person and virtual visit opportunities

We will continue to update this webpage as we learn of new opportunities. In addition, to receive the most up-to-date information, students are encouraged to sign up for the mailing lists of colleges of interest.

Upcoming College Visits to NWS (For Students Only)

This year, virtual and in-person college representative visits will take place before school and throughout the school day from September 13th through November 12th. Students can access a list of upcoming visits in SCOIR.  

Seniors are encouraged to attend the sessions of colleges to which they plan to apply, and juniors are welcomed to attend visits before school and during free periods. All students who plan to attend must sign up in advance to ensure that we have adequate space given physical distancing requirements, and visits are for students only. 

How to register for a visit in SCOIR: Use the welcome menu and click the Events and Deadlines link. Use the menu on the left to filter out application deadlines. Find the college visit you would like to attend and click the “Count Me In” button on the right side of the tile with the visit information.
