Juniors and seniors will be allowed five (5) total college or military visit days over two years. The days must be used by May 1 of one's senior year. Visits include tours, information sessions, open houses, interviews, placements exams and military visits.

Seniors, if you used two (2) days last year as a junior, you could use 3 days this year as a senior

In order for one's visit to be an excused absence, · upon return to school the student must bring in a note (not a brochure) from the school visited to the main office.
