Future Plans Survey

Every year, we ask our graduating students to complete a Future Plans Survey.  It is important for us to know what you are planning to do after graduation.  It is okay if you are not 100% certain of your plans, and we understand that plans can change, but it helps to know what you are thinking as of now.  There are also a few questions that ask you to reflect on your middle college experience.  The responses you provide on this brief survey give us good information on how the middle college can improve on how we serve students.

All BWMC graduates are required to complete the online survey before you can receive your high school diploma. It only takes a few minutes to complete, but the more thoughtful your responses are, the more it helps us going forward.

BWMC Graduating Student Survey

Mr. Ruiz emailed information and the link to the BWMC Graduating Student Survey. Many of the questions will be similar to the Future Plans Survey, but there will be more detailed questions about your experience in a middle college. It will take about 20 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at the link below:

Textbook and Chromebooks Return - April 25th to May 6th

All textbooks, BWMC materials, Chromebooks and chargers must be returned before students will receive their high school diploma.  Check your email carefully in April for information on when and how materials are to be returned.  The deadline to return all of your materials is Friday, May 6th - the Friday of finals week.

There is a $25 late fee for returning books after the deadline, and you will not receive your diploma until the materials are returned and the late fee is paid - so please be sure to return everything on time!
 

Final Success Session - Online

Graduating students' final Success Session will be held on Zoom (April 19th) and in person (April 22nd). 

The session covers a number of topics important for students to know as they leave the middle college and transition to a traditional college student either at SC4 or at a four-year college or university.  There will also be information for students looking to find a good job right after graduation.  Topics included:

  • Your future status as a BWMC graduate: Freshman? Transfer student? Sophomore? Junior?  Undergraduate or graduate student?

  • Being ready to declare a "major" and "minor" at a university. 

  • Your SC4 transcript: What does it look like?  What information is on your college transcript? When will your final SC4 transcript be ready? How do you order a college transcript in the years ahead?

  • How to buy/rent college textbooks without breaking your budget. 

  • Resources available at SC4 to help you find a job in the very near future or years from now.

While we expect students to join one of the the live sessions, we know that some students will not be available at the scheduled days or times.  The session will be recorded and the video will be posted on this page for viewing at a later day and time.
