TRIO Educational Talent Search and TRIO Upward Bound
TRiO Educational Talent Search students and their parents attended the College of Western Idaho’s first Program and Career Expo on February 11th. Program Instructors and current students were present to share details about the programs offered at the Micron Center. Students had the opportunity to see the current projects faculty and students were working on. Our group visited Horticulture, Welding, Nursing, Auto mechanics, Computer Science, Early Childhood Education, Dental Assisting, and many others. The most enjoyable part of the visit was participating in the hands-on activities and seeing the cool demonstrations. The highlight of the day for all of us – touching a life-like human brain model. Yes, it does feel like Jello! Hope to see you at our next TRIO college visit.
After you’ve finished applying for Federal Student Aid, don’t forget to verify your information. To help you with this, the IRS has created a tool to verify your income and wage information. By using this tool, you can complete the FAFSA more easily and accurately, increase accuracy in awarding financial aid funds, and, if selected for verification, you can use the tool to update your income information.
View the following slideshow to get more information about the tool and receive instruction on how to use the tool: FAFSA-IRS Data Retrieval Tool
