Quick Updates from Counseling

Mighty Falcons, I know spring has sprung and we’re all ready to go enjoy the (usually) beautiful weather, but there are a few more things to accomplish before we put this school year to bed.

1. JUNIORS – the ACT exam is next Tuesday, April 28. Have your bums in your seats by 7:30 a.m. so you can get this VERY critical test done well. The ACT can get you into college, a job, and make you eligible for a scholarship! (We’ll have breakfast at 7:00 a.m. for any student interested). Bring #2 pencils, a photo ID and a calculator. Leave your phone at home (trust me you may enjoy the liberation of not being in contact with everyone, all the time).

2. AP Exam Registration: This Thursday – April 23. See you in the Commons at 7:45 a.m. or 9:15 a.m. Don’t be late for this very important date.

3. FRCC paperwork for concurrent enrollment classes is due on Friday, April 24 – this Friday. Why not take advantage of FREE college classes. I wish I got free college classes now…

Take Care of yourselves Falcons – the next few weeks are stressful, but let’s power through.

FRCC Scholarships are going unclaimed – apply now!

Falcons there is money to be had and there is money for you. The Front Range Community College Foundation has more than $300,000 in scholarships that you can apply for now. Seriously, there is so much money that students don’t try to get because they think they “can’t” or they aren’t “eligible.” How can I disprove this myth? I’m not sure, how I can, but you can by hitting this link: Front Range Community College Foundation.

Scholarships are due 3:00 p.m., Sunday, March 1, 2015.
