Northern Marianas College is reminding interested students and members of the community about the free “Cash for College” workshop happening tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019, at the As Terlaje Campus between Buildings N and O. The workshop will be an ongoing session, so participants can stop by anytime between 9am and before the end of the workshop at 12 pm.
Participants of the workshop will be provided with personal, step-by-step assistance in completing college financial aid forms, focusing especially on forms like the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and application forms for CNMI Scholarship and Saipan Higher Education Financial Assistance (SHEFA) program.
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 upcoming Spring 2019 semester. This waiver represents a savings of up to $75.
