Freshmen

  1. Make sure you sign the Wisconsin Covenant (WC) pledge by September 30, 2011! Go to the Office of the Wisconsin Covenant Web site to enroll online or print the enrollment forms. The Office of the Wisconsin Covenant will NOT accept forms after September 30, 2011.
  2. Get off to a solid start with your grades. Remember, you need to maintain at least a "B" average.
  3. Start getting involved in your community by volunteering or ask your school counselor about possible service learning opportunities.
  4. Keep track of your service hours on the Record of Service Form provided by the Office of the Wisconsin Covenant or record your hours in a computer document. Then, when you have to report your hours when you are a senior, it will be easy to find and print the document.
  5. Get helpful information about what to do this year to prepare for college at KnowHow2GoWisconsin.org (For Freshmen).

Seniors

  1. Make sure you complete all of the paperwork for the Office of the Wisconsin Covenant by April 1, 2012 in order to become a confirmed Wisconsin Covenant Scholar. The Office of the Wisconsin Covenant will make the confirmation paperwork available to you starting January 2012.

  3. Work hard all year! Resist "senioritis" by thinking of this year as preparation for college academics. The harder you work this year, the more prepared you will be for those college classes next year.
  4. Remember to apply, in a timely manner, to all of the colleges you are interested in attending. In order to receive the Wisconsin Covenant financial aid package, you must gain admission to a University of Wisconsin System institution, a Wisconsin Technical College, and/or a Wisconsin private college or university.
