Northern Marianas College is reminding interested students and members of the community about the upcoming Cash for College workshops that will happen this week on Saipan and Tinian.
The workshop on Saipan will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, from 9:30am – 4:30pm at NMC's As Terlaje Campus. Registration will take place at the Mango Terrace, which is located next to the NMC Olympio T. Borja Library.
The workshop on Tinian will also be on Wednesday, June 15, 2022. The event will take place from 10:00am – 1:00pm in Room D of NMC's Tinian Campus.
Participants will be provided with personal, step-by-step assistance in completing college financial aid forms, focusing on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, CNMI Scholarship, Saipan Higher Education Financial Assistance (SHEFA), Tinian Municipal Scholarship, Rota Municipal Scholarship, and the TEACH Grant.
Workshop participants can also have their financial aid documents and other scholarship paperwork photocopied free of charge.
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.
Those who participate in the workshop will qualify to have their NMC application fee and placement test fees waived for the upcoming Fall 2022 semester—a savings of up to $75.
It is recommended that workshop participants bring a valid form of identification, an official transcript from high school (at least three copies), a copy of 2020 and 2021 1040, a copy of 2020 and 2021 W-2 (if not filing), and proof of CNMI residency. Applicants for SHEFA should bring a valid U.S. passport and a voters registration card.
