News & Announcements
Higher Ed day is coming to East, Feb 5th for all Juniors
In the past, students have filled out info cards at the event to recieve information from the individual schools, this can take a lot of time. We want to have students register prior to the college tour so that they have an active barcode to bring to the tour, allowing colleges to simply scan their barcode to recieve information.
We need students to register and receive a barcode PRIOR to Higher Ed Day. This will be really hard to do the day of, due to the number of students attending and internet capabilities at the school. It will take them less than five minutes to complete their registration profile.
* Have students check their school email (and spam folder) first to see if they already have a barcode generated. If not, have them register with the steps below.
* For students who do not receive an email, they need to register at www.gotocollegefairs.com.
o On a computer, select “Students Register Now”
o Select Utah on the map
o Select the Higher Ed Day, listed by date
o Select “Register Now” and complete the registration form
o Select “Print my barcode” and print.
o Students will receive an email two days before and the day of the fair with their barcode attached. This barcode can either be printed or displayed on their phone to be scanned. We do not recommend screenshotting the barcode.

Paying for College
Alisa Kearl is East's Scholarship Coordinator. Make an appointment today!
Students, if you have received any scholarship offers, even if you choose to not accept them, please report them to Alisa Kearl, Scholarship Advisor in the Counseling Center. We need to keep an accurate report of all scholarships and awards for each year. This report goes to the district to show what an awesome school we are and how brilliant our student body is. This includes all athletic, leadership, service, diversity, academic, private, and college scholarships as well as essay, math and science contests, etc. We will print your accomplishments on the programs at Awards Night and your graduation ceremony. Your effort is much appreciated as self-reporting is often our only means of discovery.
2018 Scholarship Awards
Congratulations to all of our Seniors who received scholarship offers!
Letters of Recommendation
Students who need a letter of recommendation from their counselor must submit their request in person (do not drop off or email request) at least two working weeks prior to the deadline.
