The college admissions process can seem overwhelming, but high school students and their parents can learn more about how to get in and pay for a college education at a presentation by Dr. Harvey Kesselman on Wednesday, Oct. 9, in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
Dr. Kesselman, Stockton’s provost and executive vice president, will de-mystify the process at his workshop, “Navigating Through College Admissions, Financial Aid and NCAA Athletics.”
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m.; the presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the PAC, located in the M-Wing of the main campus.
The workshop will cover the steps required for admissions, loans and scholarships and explain the terms involved.
Dr. Kesselman will:
• Outline the four types of admission: early decision, early action, rolling admission and regular admission;
• Provide the tools for applying to college;
• Give an overview of financial aid, including scholarships, grants, work programs
and loans, and outline the process for completing applications;
• Explain the many acronyms associated with the financial aid process such as: FAFSA, CSS profile, SAR, EFC and COA.
• Discuss the NCAA’s role in college admissions and scholarship programs.
The workshop is sponsored by Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District and the Southern Regional Institute (SRI) and Educational Technology Training Center (ETTC)
