  1. Students were reminded to complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The application opened on October 1 this year, and this document is necessary to be eligible for any grants or financial aid for college. There are varying deadlines for colleges and universities, so students need to get this taken care of ASAP.

  3. TVCC College Day on Nov. 10

  5. A limited number of Compendiums are available, and I have a copy that I will loan out. The Compendium contains college information as well as scholarship information.
