Free Financial Aid Workshop (December 9, 2008)

Thanks to the availability of numerous sources of financial aid, students in the CNMI have many options available to finance their college education, whether they choose to attend Northern Marianas College or enroll in an off-island institution.

To help students””especially high school juniors, seniors, and first year college students””understand this great opportunity, the College Access Challenge Project (CACP) is hosting a FREE Financial Aid Workshop from 5pm to 7pm on December 18, 2008, at the Fiesta Resort’s Hibiscus Hall. Parents of high school students are also encouraged to attend.

The workshop will feature presentations from current college students and prominent college graduates. Financial aid experts will also walk participants through the process of filling out federal financial aid forms and scholarship applications.

The College Access Challenge Project aims to increase college enrollment and retention among the CNMI’s public high school graduates. The Project will be awarding direct financial aid in the form of need-based grants and tuition and fees assistance to qualified participants. The grant will be complemented by academic support services, which will include tutoring, personal counseling, and a variety of educational activities and workshops to prepare students for success in college.

Administered by NMC, the Project will draw from the expertise of the College’s staff, other students and local financial aid representatives will assist students with admission and financial aid applications. Participants of the upcoming workshop will also receive a waiver of application and placement test fees for NMC’s Spring 2009 semester.

The CACP is funded by a federal grant under the U.S. Department of Education to increase the number of low-income students who enroll and succeed in College.
