The William Floyd High School Counseling Center recently held its second On-Site College Admissions Day of the school year giving students the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with admissions counselors from a variety local colleges and universities. Students were able to have their transcripts and applications evaluated, as well as discuss their specific goals and what each institution has to offer. At this event, 162 students received on-the-spot acceptance with an additional 44 whose applications were pending further consideration. In total, 273 students received on-the-spot acceptance at one of the two admissions events this school year. Each institution also waived or deferred the application fee for applicants.
Additionally, four of the private colleges – Long Island University, Mercy College, Mount Saint Mary College and St. Joseph’s College – confirmed the awarding of nearly $330,000 in scholarships to deserving students should they choose to attend those institutions. Other colleges and universities in attendance were Molloy College, Monroe College, SUNY Albany, SUNY Farmingdale, SUNY Old Westbury, Hunter Business School, Suffolk County Community College, Eastern Suffolk BOCES and recruiters from the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines.
