Senior Portfolio

Class of 2021: All students applying to college must turn in a Senior Portfolio to their senior counselor. UHS counselors (and teachers) will use this information to write letters of recommendation and guide you through the college application process. All portfolios are DUE on Monday, August 31, 2020 by email to your senior counselor.

The information and answers you provide in your portfolio differentiate you as an applicant before you've even applied - but putting it all together takes time! Be sure to start it early and include all 7 of the required pieces:

1) ECAP Portfolio Resume

Important! As of the end of May 20202, the Arizona Department of Education has decided to not renew it's subscription to our current ECAP System (AZCIS). If you have already started or have been working on your resume in your ECAP portfolio, you must log in by June 30th to save & download your resume. If you do not log in by this date, your work will be lost. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to save & download your current resume.
