Hello!
First, I'd like to send a special thank you to the students who joined us for our FAFSA Workshop last week! We know many of you (and/or your parents) wanted to attend but had schedule conflicts that prevented you from doing so. As a result, Willo from the University of Michigan Office of Financial Aid Outreach Team, has graciously offered to connect with those of you who still need help completing the FAFSA. If you'd like to connect with her, ask a question, or schedule some time for you and/or your parent to meet with her (via Zoom or phone call), please send her an email at wcain@umich.edu.

For many schools, December 1 (next Tuesday) is a priority application deadline! After getting a bit of rest this holiday weekend, consider applying to one of our top attended schools: EMU, OU, Wayne State, or UDM. After you apply, fill out the form here to let us know!

Interested in studying business at EMU or art and design at CCS? Be sure to check out the resource spotlight below to apply for some additional scholarship funds!

We hope you have a great Thanksgiving break!
