Below is important information for your senior year at Sheboygan North High School.
Seniors - Follow the instructions on the attached sheet if you need to send out your transcripts to a college, university, technical college or the NCAA/NAIA? If you have any questions please stop in (or contact) the Counseling Center.
IMPORTANT!!! - All final transcript requests should be made through Xello - there is a link below about how to request a transcript in Xello if needed. If you have any issues with requesting a transcript through Xello then please contact your counselor. Any transcript requests made via Xello starting May 1st will be sent after the school year concludes (and grades have been finalized) on/around June 21st. All requests made after May 1st will be considered as Final Transcript Requests - meaning that the request is for finalized transcripts to be sent after June 21st to the student’s college/university they indicated in their request. If you need a transcript sent between May 1st and June 21st to a college/university/NCAA/NAIA - or for a scholarship application - you will need to see/contact Mrs Bitney in the Student Services Office.
Some scholarships require transcripts and ACT scores. Please complete and submit to Mrs. Bitney the Scholarship Transcript Request Form. She will be in contact with you for pick-up/mailing. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD. These requests are unlimited and do not have a fee.
Fall is the time for seniors to process post secondary school applications. Whether for four or two year universities or technical colleges ….. applying early is wise. Although the following speaks directly to universities within the State of Wisconsin, the application process is somewhat universal. After you apply, you must fill out:
1. A Records Release Form (located in Counseling Center on Mrs. Bitney’s desk)
2. A Transcript Request Form (located in Counseling Center on Mrs. Bitney’s desk)
Both forms are given to Mrs. Bitney who will then attach the necessary materials (transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation) and mail to the colleges. If your transcripts are being sent electronically by your counselor via the Common Application or SENDedu then you do not need to fill out the Transcript Request Form for those schools.

The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the initial step in determining your eligibility for financial aid. More information can be found at FAFSA
Financial aid is offered to those students who illustrate a need based on federal criteria. Financial aid can be broken down into three major categories: 1 ) grants, 2) loans and 3) work study. Items one and two require an application (FAFSA) which will be available in January. The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is on online process which may not be submitted until after the first of the year.
To obtain information on student aid for college and completing the FAFSA contact FSAIC (Federal Student Aid Information Center) at 800-4FED-AID ….. 800-433-3243
In addition, North High School has a Financial Aid Night for parents and students who are interested in learning more about ways to pay for college. This night is held in October (see “Important Dates” document on this web page for the date) - and other important dates)!
