Seniors may participate in college visits for up to two (2) school days per academic year. College visit days will not count as absences on the student’s attendance record, as long as proper documentation of the visit is returned to the attendance clerk within two school days following the visit. These absences will not count against final exemptions as long as the attendance office receives the proper documentation within 2 days following the visit.
Keep an eye on your deadlines!
We post scholarships that we receive on the announcements, the bulletin board outside our door, and in the monthly email Counseling Newsletter.
School-Specific scholarships can be found on the University websites. For school-specific scholarships, many scholarship application deadlines are different then their admissions applications. Schools will either have a separate scholarship application, or they will automatically use the application used for admission as a generic scholarship app. Visit the school websites for specific requirements

LISD College Night – NorTex College Fair:
LISD students attend the NorTex College Fair in Denton. This event is hosted by UNT and TWU—over 100 colleges and universities attend every year. With COVID, it was online, but it has been in person, in Denton for previous years. The NorTex College Fair is in September.
All students with plans of attending a 2 or 4-year college/university are encouraged to take the SAT and/or the ACT. These tests can be used by colleges for admissions, placement and scholarship consideration. Fee waivers are available for eligible students. Before asking the Counselors for an SAT fee waiver, check your College Board account to see if one has already been made available for you.
Register for the test online at:
TSI: This is considered a ‘placement’ test. Once admitted to college in Texas, the TSI is administered to determine if a student is prepared to take college-level English and Math courses. SAT and ACT scores may be used in place of the TSI, if they are available. See the college admissions office for more info. Hebron will offer an administration of the SAT and ACT on campus once per year for eligible and registered students. Info will be sent when a test date is determined.
