What are you next steps?

  • Apply to Columbia in a timely fashion (NOW for 2012). Application must be complete this includes: Letter of Recommendation, Official High School Transcripts, Essay, Immunization record and App. Fee (I can waive this).
  • Complete FAFSA by March 15, 2012 (must be need based student)

Columbia gives a minimum of seventy (70) Open Door scholarships per-year; wonderfully, the last two years afforded us to award over one hundred to your students.  We currently have over 1.3 Million dollars invested in CPS students.  There, however, is one issue - students aren't eligible if they don't apply!
