Scholarships and College Application Fee Waivers

I have added some scholarships over to the right, take a look and hopefully something will be there for you to apply for!  As a reminder, the local scholarships will be available for seniors starting in mid-February.

As a reminder, most colleges in MN are offering fee waivers during the month of October.  This means if you wanted to apply to a few colleges without having to PAY the application fee, this is your opportunity!  SEIZE THE MOMENT!  =)  You can read my former post about that, here.

As always, any questions - stop and see me, call me or email me.

Senior Financial Aid Night

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! Monday, January 20th at 7:00 p.m. there will be a financial aid night held for parents and students at the Gorecki Center on the campus of the College of St Benedict. (This is NOT a College of St Benedict sponsored event - the meeting is just being held there).  You will receive an invitation for this event postmarked from the College of St Benedict, so please watch for your invitation in the mail sometime towards the end of December.

This meeting is very helpful for all students and parents.  They will talk about any changes to financial aid, how to apply, who to go to for extra help, and a question and answer time.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about the meeting.

Senior Events Coming Up!

October is a great month to push yourself, if you haven't already, to apply to college.  Here you can find a list of colleges in the state of MN that are participating in "College Knowledge Month" (formerly known as College Application Week).  Essentially this means that all of the attached named colleges are waiving their application fee so you can apply for FREE during a certain time this month.  Check it out!  It could save you a few bucks.

Tomorrow, October 8th, I will be holding 4 informational meetings for seniors to learn more about college applications, financial aid, scholarships and to answer any questions you may have.  Please plan to attend.  They will be held in room 306, Mr. Dusha's room at 7:50 a.m., 1st lunch, 3rd lunch and 2:50 p.m.

Also, for the senior parents that read this - please contact me if you would like to meet to talk about anything in relation to your senior (graduation, financial aid, scholarships, etc.)
