Fee waivers for NMC Cash for College workshop participants this Saturday

(NMC) — Individuals who participate in Northern Marianas College’s upcoming “Cash for College” workshops will qualify to have their NMC Spring 2017 admission application fee and placement test fees waived. The waiver represents a savings of up to $75.

The free workshop will be held at the NMC As Terlaje Campus on Building A, Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016. These workshops will be ongoing sessions, so participants can stop by anytime between 9 a.m. and before the end of the workshops at 12 noon. The Cash for College workshop will also be held on NMC’s Tinian and Rota on Dec. 3, 2016.

The aim of the workshops 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, the Saipan Higher Education Financial Assistance 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 2015 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 2014 (e.g., CNMI 1040 tax form, employment
verification from your employer, official transcripts, voters certification, etc.)
