The fall semester is upon us. If you are thinking about taking college classes this fall, there is still time to register. There are many open classes at our affiliated colleges, as well as late-start classes that begin in September and October.
The 2022-2023 financial aid application (FAFSA) will open on October 1, 2021. Schools often distribute student aid funds on a first-come, first-serve basis in order of when students complete the financial aid applications. Because of this, we encourage everyone to fill out the application early. Amador College Connect partners with the Mother Lode Educational Opportunity Center to provide individual assistance with the financial aid application. Call the center to schedule an appointment.
We would like to welcome our new staff member Karen Warburton to Amador College Connect. Karen will be taking over for Nickie Crofts as the new program assistance/transition specialist. We will miss Nickie and wish her all the best in her adventures at graduate school in Scotland.
In other news, the center will now be open an additional five hours a week to provide support services to our students. Our partnership with the Jackson Rancheria to offer their employees scholarships has resumed and we are excited to assist with this.
We remain dedicated to both student and staff safety by continuing the implementation of Covid-19 protocols including limiting traffic at the center through the use of staggered appointments, and requiring the use of facial coverings.
