The Associated Students of Modesto Junior College (ASMJC) is teaming up with Students United Reaching for Equality (SURE) and MJC’s International Student Program to host a workshop for high school seniors and recent graduates on how to make college a reality, with an emphasis on assisting California Dream Act students and those who need information about financial aid. The California Dream Act allows undocumented and nonresident documented students who meet certain provisions to apply for and receive community college fee waivers, Cal Grants, state-administered financial aid, university grants, and private scholarships funded through public universities.
The free event is themed “Dream…possibilities are endless” and it will take place on Saturday, Jan. 31 beginning at 8 a.m. in the Mary Stuart Rogers Student Learning Center on West Campus, 2201 Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto. The workshop will include information on financial aid, Extended Opportunities, Programs and Services (EOP&S), California Dream Act, and the application process at MJC.
“We want to assist the dreamers of our community who are interested in attending Modesto Junior College,” said Luis Rebolledo, ASMJC president.
Reservations are requested. To sign-up for the workshop contact the MJC International Student Program at (209) 575-6463.
