​High School Senior Information

Congratulations on your graduation from high school in June 2014! 


​Summer/Fall 2014 Applications are NOW OPEN!

Apply today!

As you reach this milestone, we hope it gives you time to think about what your life looks like after high school. 
Whatever you decide, please remember that College of the Sequoias has many opportunities to offer you.  Our new COS Hanford Educational Center is home not only to our police and fire programs, we also offer a wide range of classes to meet your needs.  We can provide assistance with getting a “jump start” on a four-year degree with transferable classes, obtaining a two-year degree (Associate of Arts/Associate of Science degree), or gaining specific job skills. 

Wondering how to get Priority Registration?

Participate in STEPS!

STEPS (Student Transitional Enrollment Process Sessions) is a program designed to help transition High School Seniors into Community College Freshman. Graduating seniors are eligible for priority registration IF they:

  1. Take COS Placement Test
  2. Meet with a COS Counselor
  3. RSVP and Attend STEPS

Once you receive your palcement test results, call to schedule an appointment with a COS Counselor to complete your Student Educational Plan. Indicate you are a graduating high school senior when you make your appointment.

You MUST meet with a Counselor before attending STEPS.
