Chemeketa Community College will be visiting in the Upper Commons TODAY. Check out all the amazing programs they offer, from certificates you can earn in just a term or two, to two-year degrees that transfer to a bachelor’s program.

ITT Tech will be visiting next Monday, if you’re thinking of a technical career. They will be available to meet with students in the Upper Commons, as well as during 6th period in the ASPIRE Center. Sign up to attend the 6th period presentation outside Rm 234.

Have you filed your FAFSA online financial aid application yet? While there is no absolute deadline, it is highly recommended that you file by Feb. 1st for maximum access to funds. Colleges &trade schools, and many outside scholarships, use the information from your FAFSA.

And speaking of scholarships, if you’re doing the OSAC application for up to 450 Oregon scholarships, please DO NOT request a transcript through the Southsaxons website. Just check the box on your online application. If you have questions, stop by ASPIRE in mid-Feb. to verify that your transcript has been uploaded.
