Seniors are responsible for their college applications; please do not create any accounts for your child (e.g., Common App, College Board, or ACT accounts) or complete any parts of their college applications. Doing so can impede the process of submitting transcripts and recommendation letters to colleges through Naviance and may delay your child’s college applications.
