• If you are in high school and applying to colleges that require a mid-year grade report, have your counselor send your first semester grades to those schools. And don’t slack off – colleges like to see strong second semester grades, not evidence of your senioritis.

 

  • Scholarship application season is in full swing. If you haven’t started researching or applying for scholarships yet, start now. Yes, right now!

 

  • One resource to help you navigate the complex road to paying for college is the College Goal Sunday Program, a statewide volunteer program launched by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association. College Goal offers free financial aid information and FAFSA assistance to students seeking a post-secondary education. USA Funds is currently sponsoring the program in 10 states. See the College Goal website for info, dates and locations.
