College Counseling Office Programs, Events, and Workshops

The College Counseling Office (CCO) offers a well-developed college counseling program that includes a variety of focused events for students and families.
 
Throughout the fall, the CCO hosts admission representatives from approximately 100 colleges and universities who visit D-E during the school day to inform our seniors about the opportunities at their institutions.  11th Grade students are welcome to attend these college information sessions as long as it does not conflict with a class. The list of visiting colleges is posted on Naviance, in the Senior Lounge, and in the College Counseling wing in Leggett Hall. In addition, D-E is the host site for Bergen County College Information Sessions in the fall and spring which is open to students and families in and surrounding Bergen County.  
 
During the 2017-18 academic year the CCO will administer the PSAT to 11th Grade students in the fall and to 10th Grade students in the spring.  For this year D-E is the test center for the October, December, and June SAT administration test dates.

    NEW SAT FORMAT
    If a student-athlete takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining the student-athlete's initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.
