TIPS OF THE MONTH:

TIP ONE: Ask your employer if they offer any help with your child's future  college costs . They may offer scholarships for family members or other awesome programs like tuition reimbursement or discounts at specific institutions.

TIP TWO: The Utah Scholars Recognition Application deadline is in March.  If your child has earned the required 200 points, they'll earn the Utah Scholars certificate and medallion to wear at graduation. It's not too late to complete the college readiness tasks they need to qualify.  Click here for more information.
