In this increasingly complex and ever-evolving crisis, our commitment to be available to students and alumni is as strong as ever. Our team is currently working remotely, you should feel free to call or email us if you have questions. For Transcript requests, details can be found at blogs.pennmanor.net/pmhscounseling/transcript-requests. Some things to keep in mind, current students should request transcripts to be sent to NCAA or colleges via Xello. Alumni transcripts and scholarship transcripts can be requested via the Transcript Release Form at the above link. Due to institutions working remotely, please provide the email address of the admissions office or scholarship committee.
Due to school closing, the spring ASVAB was cancelled. If you’re still interested in taking the ASVAB, there are two ways that you can do so.
- If you are a current junior student, the ASVAB will be offered next year in October 2020 and March 2021. The sign-up form for the test will be emailed to you once the test date is near. In the meantime, you can start preparing for the ASVAB by taking practice tests online or by contacting a recruiter for a practice exam.
- If you are a current senior student and wish to take the ASVAB, you will want to contact one of our military recruiters. They will be able to assist you through the testing process at their recruiting sites.
To access military contact information and practice websites, please click on this link: https://blogs.pennmanor.net/pmhscounseling/2296-2/2017/ which will direct you to the ASVAB section of the counseling blog. For any additional questions, please email Mrs. Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
