Early College Application Meeting

Wednesday, March 6th at 3:30pm

This meeting is mandatory for new families interested in participating in the Early College Program next year (future 11th and 12th graders). Students must meet the Eligibility Index before applying.

Students will need their SSN, a parent, and residency information to apply.

This is an excellent way for students to take any USU class they meet the prerequisites for on USU’s campus under scholarship.

12th – FAFSA Process Delays

Federal Student Aid is making some inflationary adjustments to the Student Aid Index calculation and Pell Grant Eligibility.

These adjustments will cause a processing delay of all student FAFSA forms (ISIRs). It is estimated that this delay will push processing student FAFSAs into March.

Please reach out to me if you have any issues completing your FAFSA!
