College, career & military readiness

We want all students to leave Rowlett High School with some sort of preparedness for their next chapter. In an effort to accomplish this goal, we offer TSI-A testing for students wanting to go on to college, certification programs for students wishing to go straight to work, and of course signing on with one of the military branches is another avenue for CCMR.

Go Center

Rhos Go Center in the Counselors office, with computers for students to use in the college application process & for testing

What is a Go Center?

A location designed to create a college-going culture to help promote college awareness and reach out to students and parents to help provide them with tools and information needed to help college become a reality.

Who can go to a Go Center?

The Go Center is primarily for seniors, but we are able to help all students. Parents are also welcome as we can help them learn about financial aid, how to help them prepare their student for college, and resources available for their student.

When can students come to the Go Center?

Students can come before school, during their lunch, or after school. They are also welcome during class, if they have the time and their teacher allows them to come. Students do not need an appointment to come to the Go Center. If they are sent from class, they will need the Go Center pass and their RHS ID. Students will need their ID to be scanned into our system, and will be checked out when they leave the center. 

TSI-A Testing through the Go Center:

We are offering once a month testing for the TSI-A. Students must sign up in the Go Center or they can email Ms. Cox. The dates are included below. There will be two testing sessions for each of the dates listed, either 7:00-9:00 p.m. or 1:00-3:00 p.m. and all testing will be done in the library computer lab. Students must complete the PAA on the Friday before they plan to test. students will not be permitted to test if they are late. Passes will be sent to students on the lists and the rosters will be emailed out to teachers.

Financial aid

You must complete and submit a FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid - as soon as possible after October 1st, 2019.

This is the only way to apply for federal student aid for college or career school - and for most state and institutional aid. Financial aid offices use information from the FAFSA to determine if you are eligible to receive federal student aid from grants, loans, and work-study programs. Be sure to file a FAFSA even if you think you won't qualify so you won't be locked out of monetary awards.

Go to FAFSA to apply online. If you would like to have a FAFSA worksheet before going online to apply, pick one up in the counselors' office. Check the calendar of events for district and school financial aid workshops. If you aren’t sure you qualify for the FAFSA, you may need to fill out a TASFA- stop by the counselor’s office with help for either one.

For all inquiries related to transcripts, please visit the Transcripts section of the Academics page.
