    12/15/2017 SHIPPENSBURG "APPLY FOR FREE"

    To celebrate the holiday season, Shippensburg University is currently offering an application fee waiver. From now until December 31, students can apply for free using the “Shipsgiving” code. When a student applies, they will select that fee waiver from the drop-down list. No other documentation is needed. Please let any interested students know about this money-saving opportunity.

    As a reminder about our application, we work off of Rolling Admissions, so our application is still online and available for any interested students to apply (www.ship.edu/apply).           We also require SAT or ACT scores and an official high school transcript. Letters of recommendation and/or essays are not required, but we encourage students to also submit them for admissions consideration and scholarships.

    I also wanted to make you aware of our new Raider Success Scholarship. This is a guaranteed scholarship for all students that meet the following criteria: 1200 SAT or a 25 ACT, as well as a GPA of a 3.5 or Top 25% of their graduating class. Any students that meet the criteria will receive a $2,000 renewable scholarship, totaling $8,000 over the course of their 4-years at Ship.

    Join us in sharing the guides you find most helpful with your website’s audience. It’s as easy as adding a link to your list of resources here - https://www.canton.k12.pa.us/Page/1335 - or wherever you see fit. Together we can make education more accessible for graphic design students across the country.

    The Dept of Labor recently reported that college tuition and fees had increased by 63% in the last 10 years. Numerous scholarship programs seek to make college more affordable for graphic design students across the country.

    Our team at TheBestColleges.org is committed to assisting graphic design students throughout their college experience with a new resource dedicated to graphic design scholarships that offers ways to help lower the cost of college.

    We also have degree-specific guides that you might find helpful:

    Important information that  you should be aware of:  

    The company is called C3workshop.com. The letters are being sent to students in grades 9 through 12 in PA.

    They state there is no money for the "meeting" but additional fees will be charged for little to no services. Note that the company is based also out of Las Vegas.

    The letter makes it appear like this company has done research already to help students find the right school for them and Financial Aid. We know this is not the case.

    We do not want our families to fall victim to something like this.
