The deadline for McMurry University’s The College PASS (Prepare, Apply, Select, and Succeed) is Tuesday, November 1. The seminar will provide much-needed information about college preparation and financial aid for high school juniors and seniors and their parents.

The event, being held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, November 5, is free for participants. Guests are not required to apply to McMurry in order to participate.

During this event, juniors and seniors will learn about preparing for college, applying for college, selecting the right career path and university, and how to be successful in their college of choice. The McMurry financial aid team will be set up in Jay-Rollins Library to help students and parents actually complete their FAFSA. Just bring all of your 2015 tax information with you.

Guest speakers will cover ten different topics ranging from: preparing the student for college in their junior year of high school, how to fund higher education, preparing your taxes for college reporting,  applying for college, successful essays, admissions, financial aid, loans, scholarships, defining majors, budgeting, and how to be successful in college straight from McMurry professors and students.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., businesses, organizations and other universities will be available to visit with College PASS participants and their families.
