From our College office:
After a great kick-off in early October with guest speaker Ed Zamora speaking on the financial aid process, the PPAS College Office is continuing our fall series with two additional college nights in November, both on zoom at 6:30 pm, as follows:
– Tuesday, November 1st, 6:30 pm – Overview of the college application process and an accessible review of FAFSA basics
– Tuesday, November 15, 6:30 pm – Navigating Support Programs for:
- First Generation students
- Low Income Students
- Students with academic challenges, including those with IEPs
Please keep in mind that ALL families in the PPAS community, regardless of grade level, are invited to the fall and the spring College Night Series. When planning your time, however, please be aware that the fall series is specific to the12th grade year, with a great deal of detail that is meaningful when in the midst of the application process.
The spring series, though focused on the 11th grade year, is likely a better time to gain a more general introduction to the college process if your child is in a lower grade. However, again, regardless of grade level, you are most welcome at any of the college nights, and we look forward to seeing you there.
Lastly, parents of Seniors should note that this week is SUNY FREE APPLICATION WEEK(S). Students, regardless of financial standing, can apply to up to 5 SUNY Schools for free. Please see the link for more info.
