Welcome to College Corner Seniors! This newsletter will go out to you every two weeks with important updates so please keep an eye out. The College Corner will be related to the college application process, college & career events available in our community, vital scholarships and financial information, and a host of other things. If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Capellan or Ms. Chowdhury at email@example.com Congrats to all who have submitted your CUNY, SUNY, and/or FAFSA/TAP! We are so proud of you all for working so hard. For those still working on your application, please bring in the proper forms ASAP. There is a hold on CUNY submission at the moment because we do not have any more fee waivers. This will not impact you negatively so do not worry. Reminders November is SUNY month. If you are interested, create an account and start the application. Come to the office for guidance and do not submit without showing Ms. Capellan or Ms. Chowdhury. If you have not submitted your FAFSA, please bring the proper documents ASAP and know the required information.
