Individuals who participate in the Northern Marianas College’s upcoming “Cash for College” workshops will qualify to have their NMC Fall 2016 admission application fee and placement test fees waived. The waiver represents a savings of up to $75.
The free workshops will be held at the NMC campus on Saipan (As Terlaje campus in Building A), this Saturday, June 18, 2016. The workshop will be an ongoing session, so participants can stop by anytime between 9am and before the end of the workshop at 3pm.
The aim of the workshop is to assist students and their parents in maximizing scholarship opportunities that are available to students seeking to obtain a college education. The Cash for College workshops are open to new and ongoing students, as well as members in the community.
Participants of the workshop 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 (FAFSA), the Saipan Higher Education Financial Assistance (SHEFA) program, the CNMI Scholarship, the TEACH Grant, and more.
Although not required, it is recommended that workshop participants bring a valid form of identification (e.g., a valid passport, birth certificate, or green card), three official transcripts, signed 2014 1040 tax form (2014 W-2 statements if you and/or your parents did not or will not file taxes), and/or proof of CNMI residency for 2014 and 2015 (e.g., CNMI 1040 tax form, employment verification from your employer, official transcripts, voters certification, etc.)
The Cash for College workshop is made possible by the financial support of the U.S. Department of Education’s College Access Challenge Grant program. This federal program aims to increase the number of students from underrepresented minority populations enrolled in college.
