Free ‘Cash for College’ workshop on Tinian

Saipan Tribune – Wednesday, May 18, 2011

The Northern Marianas College and the College Access Challenge Project will host a free “Cash for College” workshop to help students and their parents maximize scholarship opportunities for college.

The free workshop is on Tuesday, May 31, 2011, at the Tinian Instructional Site in Room D. The workshop will be an ongoing session, so participants can stop by anytime between 9am and 12pm.

Participants will be provided with personal, step-by-step assistance in completing college financial aid forms, focusing especially on forms for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the Tinian Municipal Scholarship, and the CNMI Scholarship.

Those who attend the workshop will qualify to have their NMC admission application fee and their placement test fees waived for the fall 2011 semester. This represents a saving of about $75 for a semester.

Participants should bring a valid form of identification (e.g., a valid U.S. passport, copy of valid application for a U.S. passport, birth certificate, or green card), an official transcript from high school (at least three official copies), tax forms, and proof of CNMI residency for 2009 and 2010, including proof of continuing residency. Applicants for Tinian Municipal Scholarship must bring a U.S. passport, a voter registration card, and proof of vote cast.

For more information, call NMC at 433-0657/0649 or email (NMC)
