FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION SESSION - sponsored by ISFAA
Wednesday, Nov 1, 2017 
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Ivy Tech Community College, Lafayette
Ivy Hall Auditorium
Both Ivy-Tech and Purdue staff will be on hand to present and answer questions.  Interest in attending either Ivy-Tech or Purdue University is not required to attend.  This program is for any student who plans to attend college in the fall of 2018, and any of their family members.  This is an information-only event (they will not be filing the FAFSA).

COLLEGE GOAL SUNDAY
Sunday, Nov 5, 2017
2:00 p.m.
Ivy Tech Community College, Lafayette
This is the first of two College Goal Sunday events to help families with filing the 2018-19 FAFSA.
All students/families are welcome.

The 2018-19 FAFSA will collect 2016 tax information, so most students/families should be able to use the IRS-DRT to transfer their already completed 2016 tax info directly into the FAFSA. 
**One step that families should do ahead of filing the FAFSA is to create the Federal Student Aid ID, FSA-ID (one for the student-one for a parent) by going to www.fafsa.gov and clicking the FSA-ID icon at the top, then following the instructions.

SENIORS - USE OUR COMPUTERS TO GET HELP WITH YOUR COLLEGE APPS
Several seniors have stopped by the counseling office to ask questions about the college applications they’re working on, which is great!  We want all of you to know that you are welcome any time to come in and use our computers to show us parts of the apps that you have questions about. It’s easy for one of us to watch over your shoulder to make sure you’re doing everything correctly, and we’re happy to do so.
Come by any time (7:45 a.m. through 3:45 p.m.), and we’ll be there to help.


CLASS OF 2018 STUDENT AND PARENT/GUARDIAN MEETING
All seniors and their parents/guardians as well as juniors and their parents/guardians were invited to attend our annual meeting to kick off the college application season.  For anyone who was unable to attend or who wants to hear it all again, you may tune in at the following link:

NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT (grades 7-12)
Complete these steps:
 
-  Establish residency.  You must live in the WLCSC corporation in order to send your child to this school.  Go here to view the map:  http://www.wl.k12.in.us/info/school-boundaries.  Once you have a lease or purchase agreement, we will need a copy to keep in the student's file.
 
-  Make an appointment for math placement (and language testing, if your student is not a native English speaker).  Your child will take one or two tests -- one to determine the math class and, if needed, one to determine English language abilities.  You may contact our registrar, Mrs. Jennifer Zink (zinkj@wl.k12.in.us or 765-746-0418), to set up those appointments.  When your child comes in for the first test, you should come also to get the enrollment forms.
 
-  Make an enrollment appointment (zinkj@wl.k12.in.us or 765-746-0418).  Once we know the math (and English language) levels, we will be able to place your child in classes.  Please tell Mrs. Zink the name and address of your child's former school so that she may request records from them.
 
Here is some more information for you to know:
-  We need a copy of your child's birth certificate or passport.
-  We need a copy of your child's immunization record.
-  For those coming from out-of-country, we place students in the grade level that is age-appropriate, even if that grade level was completed already in another country.



*Unofficial transcripts can now be viewed under "Documents".  All Official copies must be requested through Parchment.com or by contacting Mrs. Zink in the Counseling Office.
