Senior Parent Volunteers Needed for Project Graduation on Friday, May 30th!!!
My name is Jodi Cinder I am just one of the Parents helping to make our kids Project Graduation a success . Project Graduation is an annual event for UH graduating Seniors. It is held shortly after graduation in the CPA . Project Graduation is an over night event where our kids get to celebrate one last time as a class together. It runs from 9pm until the following morning 6am.
In order to make this event possible and fun for our Seniors we need your assistance. We need Chaperones ( at least 6 at all times throughout the facility). During the event it is also tradition to have hourly raffles. Here too is where you can help. Donations of any kind for the raffle or monetary amount of any denomination would be great for that will be used to purchase gift cards.
Please send me an email back with the time you could be available to help chaperone. Do not worry if you cannot help out more then an hour...any time is greatly appreciated !!!
Also , send me an email with your name and phone number if your able to help in the donation department. We will have the forms for this donation is to UH and will be tax deductible.
Lets go Bucs!!!

The 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will go live on January 1, 2014. This is the FAFSA that should be completed by your graduating high school seniors who plan to enroll in college for Fall 2014.
Students may use the FAFSA4caster (http://studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa/estimate) now to get an estimate of their Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is an index that colleges use to determine what financial aid the student may receive. The FAFSA4caster will then determine what types of federal grants, loans, and work-study the student may qualify for and will provide them with an estimated award amount for each.

Permission to Enroll form to Ms. Shaw
Dual Enrollment Grant online at https://clipslink.guarantorsolutions.com/StudentSignon/Default.aspx.
Also, remember that you must maintain a 3.2 US/ETSU gpa to stay dually enrolled, a 3.4 US/ETSU to get the extra scholarship money, and a 2.75 ETSU gpa to get your dual enrollment grant. A B- in a college course is equivalent to a 2.7 (too low to maintain the dual enrollment grant) so it is extremely important to monitor your grades.
Seniors, be sure that you request any needed courses to fulfill your graduation requirements.
Just a reminder that ETSU Dual Enrollment students must fill out a Permission to Enroll form (available in my office) to be able to register for spring semester. Students at ETSU, NSTCC, and Milligan must all fill out the online Dual Enrollment Grant Application. Some students may have completed both portions in the fall, but all students should check their TSAC accounts. Here is the web link: http://www.tn.gov/collegepays/stud_par/stu_par.htm Thanks!
