Northern Marianas College is reminding students and members of the community about the free “Cash for College” workshop that will happen today, Dec. 5, at the NMC Tinian Center.
The workshop will be an ongoing session, so participants can stop by anytime between 10am and before the end of the workshop at 4pm.
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, the Tinian Municipal Scholarship, and the CNMI Scholarship, and more.
Staff members from the college’s Office of Admissions and Records will also be present to provide information and assistance with the NMC application process. In addition, those who participate in the workshop will qualify to have their NMC application fee and placement test fees waived for the spring 2018 semester. This represents a savings of up to $75.
Although not required, it is recommended that workshop participants 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), copy of 2015 and 2016 1040, copy of 2015 and 2016 W-2 (if not filing), and proof of CNMI residency, including proof of continuing residency.
