FAQ"s -

"How do I add schools that I am applying to on my Naviance Account?'

Please see the Naviance tab under "College and Career'. There are how to videos on Youtube along with a CHS Job Aid. It is important for students to tell Naviance where the student is applying so Clairemont can know too. Students can request sending official documents to colleges through Naviance (See "Requesting CHS Transcripts Tab'). See your counselor or Registrar for assistance.
