Then you need to register in your Junior year at the NCAA eligibility center ( YES, you must do this if you intend to pay any sport in college) Please do this. fee is 70.00 and if you have your fees waived for the SAT then you fee will also be waived for the NCAA Center.
Financial aid is a must and there are other things you can see if you qualify for, students this is a big step for you (adulthood) and now is the time for you to start thinking for yourself and taking it upon yourself to do what is required of you to be a success in everything you set out to do in your LIFETIME, Do not live your life for me (team mom) or anyone else, LIVE YOUR LIFE BEING “YOU” AND MAKING “YOU” HAPPY, at the end of the day it is only “YOU” that matters inside of your soul whether or not you are happy.
Now is the time to get your financial ad packages completed, they are online only.
Here are the links to all of the aid many of you will qualify for:

I have given you the majority of the links, go and read the website and follow the step by step process, you will need details from your parent’s income and other items. You need to read and know what you are getting yourself into and joining and understand it.
This is all information that should have been given to you already and most of you should have had this completed already… you still have time to get all of this completed and be ready for College and your next step in life, remember a 2 year college or a 4 year college they are good either way. I think everyone should start off at a 2 year college and then transfer to a 4 year, since most of you are not used to being in an grown up world and are not mature enough to handle the COLLEGE LIFE, a 2 year college will train you for the next step and it will also save money since you will be local and can live at home or get a job and live on your own.
In the 2 years of College you will mature and grow into the young man or young lady you are supposed to be and you will be ready for a 4 year venture. Pushing a 4 year college on all students I do not think is correct, all options of education and also technical schools should also be made available for all students and do not treat a student differently just because they are not wanting to do a 4 year college, that is not your job as teachers and counselors to show discouragement to any student for their plans in their life.
I am always here for all of my children and if you need help completing your online forms please let me know and we can arrange to get them done.
I want you all to be happy in your life and to do only you….
Hugs to all of my children and know I am ever so proud of you all for staying in school and making it to this point and to keep growing and never let anyone tell you that you CAN’t or your NOT GOOD enough.
Each and everyone of you can do anything and everything as long as you believe in YOU!!!!
