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 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 Fall 2019 semester. This waiver represents a savings of up to $75.

In addition, parents or guardians interested in attending the Cash for College workshop can also bring their children to the Children’s Center in NMC’s Building K in Rooms 1 and 2. This free service is provided by NMC’s School of Education and will be ongoing throughout the event. Parents that utilize the Children’s Center must sign a liability form.

Although not required, it is recommended that workshop participants bring a valid form of identification (e.g., a valid U.S. passport, birth certificate, and green card), an official transcript from high school (at least three official copies), copy of the 2017 1040 tax form, copy of 2017 W-2 (if not filing), and proof of CNMI residency, such as the voter certification report.
