Sol Jensen, Assistant Vice President of Admissions & Financial Aid
Spring has sprung! Things are buzzing in our Admissions Office, with seniors making their final college decisions and juniors beginning to look at colleges. If you have seniors who haven't made their final college decision yet, encourage them to take a look at UND! We're still accepting applications and welcome the opportunity to meet your students' higher education goals.
Speaking of your senior class, we may still be able to award them new or additional scholarships. Students do not need to complete a separate scholarship application; new applicants only need to apply to UND, while already-admitted students need to contact us and send their updated transcripts or ACT/SAT scores that demonstrate improved GPA or test scores.
Because our scholarship deadline has passed, I encourage you or your students to contact our Student Financial Aid Office at 1.800.CALL.UND (800.225.5863) ext. 6673 to determine students' eligibility and request that they be reviewed for scholarship opportunities.
I'm also excited to announce a new venue for us to connect with counselors, Hot Topics Counselor Breakfasts! We are hosting breakfasts in Grand Forks, Fargo, and Bismarck, ND this spring, with hopes to expand our locations in the future. Check out the Counselor Breakfasts article for more information. I hope to see you there!
At the Hot Topics Counselor Breakfasts, University administrators and I will introduce some of the upcoming changes at UND beginning in Fall 2015, including updates on the Pathways admissions index, a holistic review process, scholarships, priority application deadline, course scheduling and 4-year plans, and more. I'll also go into more detail on these topics in our May issue of Counselor fUNDamentals.
Contact me at sol.jensen@UND.edu or 701.777.3885 if there is anything I can do to assist you.
