Fee Waivers for Tinian (June 29 2016)

Individuals who participate in the Northern Marianas College’s upcoming “Cash for College” workshop on Tinian 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 Tinian Instructional Site (Room D & Computer Lab), this Thursday, June 30, 2016. The workshop will be an ongoing session, so participants can stop by anytime between 9:00am and before the end of the workshop at 3:00pm.

In addition to the workshop, the college will also be conducting English and math placement tests on the following dates:

July 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15

English: 9:00am – 12:00pm

Math: 1:00pm – 4:00pm

The aim of the “Cash for College” workshop is to assist students and their parents in maximizing scholarship opportunities that are available to students seeking to obtain a college education. The 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 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 2015 (e.g., CNMI 1040 tax form, employment verification from your employer, official transcripts, voters certification, etc.)

The free “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.
