Wednesday, June 28 Last Day of School
Freshmen & Sophomore Official Class 9:30 am-10:15 am
Senior & Junior Official Class 11:00 am-11:45 am
Staffed by two College Guidance Counselors, a College Office Secretary, and a College Office Assistant, we are here to assist Midwood students in their college exploration and application process.
Welcome to the College Office page!
Many of you have come to the office with questions about Governor Cuomo's new tuition initiatives for 2017. "Hey, I hear that tuition is free!" is a commonly heard exclamation from students in our office. While tuition can be free for some students beginning in the year 2017-18, there is much more information than the small sound bites we've heard on the news. Please look at the presentation under the Resources section on the left side of this page, titled *NEW* NYS Higher Education Scholarships for a detailed outline of the new initiatives.
ALSO, Michael St. John Turner from the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation will be here to discuss all financial aid matters including the new initiatives at the next Parents' Association meeting on Tuesday, May 9 at 6 pm. Mr. Turner is a highly sought after speaker in NYC high schools because he delivers clear, concise information that will help families understand the ins-and-outs of financial aid. This presentation will be beneficial for all grades, and especially for parents of seniors and juniors. We hope you can join us.
If you have misplaced your Naviance registration code you must see your Guidance Counselor for the code or come to the College Office to reset your password. We expect ALL students to be registered on Naviance. It's the best way for you to research your colleges and universities.
It's not too early to get started on your college office files. Remember the three short references and the other documents that were discussed in your English classes in March? If you don't remember what was discussed in your junior orientations, you can view the presentation under the Resources tab. All college office documents have been attached to this website AND are on your Naviance accounts. ALSO, you should be reviewing the College Office Handbook for important procedures. There's a checklist on the first three pages - print those sheets out and get started! Or, if you'd rather use your phone, add the checklist items and get going! Of course, we strongly encourage you to visit the college office with any questions you have.
Your Senior Questionnaire (survey) is due Friday, May 12!
It's not too late to apply for scholarships! Please see the Midwood scholarships attached to this website. Deadlines are approaching!
