Registrar's Reminders

The LJHS Registrar, Mrs. Lopez, is the point person for all things college application related. This includes transcripts, School Reports, counselor recommendations and scholarships. She logs in all paperwork and disburses the forms to the proper parties (usually the counselors). The only thing she does not handle is teacher recommendations - those are handled directly between the student and teacher.

To ensure a smooth college application process, please don't forget these important items:

  • If you are applying to private colleges, speak to your counselor and make them aware that you are applying to private schools that require a recommendation. See your counselor at least 4 weeks before your actual deadline.
  • PAY ATTENTION TO ALL DEADLINES! The deadline to guarantee School Reports get mailed by January 1 is 4-5 weeks prior to winter break so make an effort to turn in forms in advance of the deadline. Listen carefully to the bulletin for the actual deadline date. Please do not wait until the last day to turn in forms! Please turn them in as early as possible!
  • Log on to Xello and fill out your resume and student information. Make sure your parents fill out the parent input questionnaire on Xello through student account. Do this in the early fall - or better yet, over the summer. Your counselor needs this information to complete the School Report.
  • Transcripts are ordered via Xello. Please see "Transcript Information" for step by step directions for ordering transcripts.
  • If you are applying to private schools that do NOT use the Common Application, copy the School Report for each school to which you are applying. If more than one page, copy the School Report back-to-back and put your name at the top of each page. Paper clip together and turn in to the Registrar. If the school cannot accept forms electronically, bring a stamped #10 envelope addressed to each school needing documents sent via US Mail.
  • If you took classes prior to 2016-17, offered by Mesa College or UCSD at LJHS (i.e. Political Science, Math 150-151, Math 254 or 245), order a transcript for those classes directly from the colleges. For Mesa College, visit Services/Transcripts.
  • If you change your mind about applying to a school after turning in your paperwork, please inform the Registrar so she won't send out your School Reports or transcripts to that school!
  • Scholarship forms which require a counselor's signature or recommendation should be turned into the Registrar. Please note that La Jolla High School uploads automatically for the senior class every student's Cal Grant information to the state of California.

Do you have questions about the college application process? Go ask the Registrar either before first period, after sixth period or at lunch!
