NMJC Helps Students Find Cash For College
2/21/2017 10:36:30 a.m. - Hobbs, NM. New Mexico Junior College (NMJC) is hosting a Cash for College workshop Saturday, February 25th from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the Ben Alexander Student Learning Center to help potential students apply for scholarships and financial aid. Sessions will start every 30 minutes.
Financial aid professionals will be on hand to answer questions and guide parents and students through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Anyone can apply for FAFSA, and having experts show students how to answer questions on the application should alleviate many mistakes often made.
To apply for FAFSA at the workshop, students must bring their 2015 federal income tax return, along with their parents’ return if the student is a dependent.
Staff members of the NMJC Foundation will also present a workshop for those students wishing to apply for scholarships. A variety of scholarships are available, with the majority providing assistance toward tuition and fees. All scholarship applications for the 2017-2018 school year are due by 5:00pm on March 15, 2017. The application is available online at www.nmjc.edu; no paper applications will be accepted.
