Hello Students!!

 

For those that were unable to attend our Student Loan Repayment presentation this past Wednesday we wanted to make the power point available.  Please use this as a resource as you enter repayment on your student loans and a guide to navigate through these next few months.  Please feel free to print it out, share it, and refer back to it over time. 

 

I wanted to take a moment and say "Thank You" to all of our attendees that were able to make it.  I understand we were up against some other campus events and we appreciate you coming out, asking great questions, and learning about repaying your loans.  We apologize to those that were unable to make it due to scheduling conflicts. 


Thank you!


Heather Cooper

Assistant Director

MSOE Financial Aid Office

Happy May! Happy Star Wars Day! Happy Met Gala Day! Finals are right around the corner and summer is right after. That being said, I'm going to keep it really simple for you guys this week and just focus on the great MSOE-Only scholarships we are offering.

 

However, if you have some down time this is a good time to remind you that you can and should be doing your own scholarship searching. The Hub/Money Monday is still the only place you will find MSOE-Specific opportunities, and I do my best to find other broadly applicable scholarships for people to apply for (and you ARE winning them, as evidenced by scholarship checks I see coming through our office ), BUT you are all unique and there are so many unique scholarships out there. If you are unsure where to start, check out our Scholarship Presentation and get going. May the Fourth be with you on your search today (couldn't resist).

Best of luck to all who apply!

The Boston Marathon was today, baseball season is in full swing, Michael Phelps is back to winning races, and the Milwaukee Bucks are actually in the playoffs. All of these sport feats, coupled with beach season looming, may be inspiring you to get out of your winter hibernation and get fit. Physical fitness is definitely an important aspect to overall well being, but so is financial fitness! Apply to a scholarship today so you are in a better financial place next year. Also, for anyone who wants to learn about loan repayment (which should be anyone who has borrowed a loan for school) should put our great Student Loan Repayment Presentation event on their calendar!

It's certainly an exciting time of year. The weather is finally getting consistently warmer, summer break is about a month away, baseball is back, and of course festival season is beginning too! With so much fun in the coming months, don't forget about paying for school. That fall tuition payment may seem far off now, but it will be here before you know it. Apply for a scholarship today so you can relax this summer!

(Because it's not a prank; these scholarships are real!)

 

Best of luck to all who apply!

Welcome back to campus, and welcome to the last quarter of the school year! It finally feels like spring outside, the sun is shining, and the possibility of summer is actually something you can start to imagine. The only thing getting me down is that pesky "Spring Forward" Daylight Savings Time stuff, which is basically pointless now and actually harmful to our circadian rhythms, but I digress.

 

Even though it's the start of the term, scholarships are still abundant. Some are for this year and some are already for next school year! Plan ahead, and secure those dollars.

 

One quick reminder: MSOE's priority FAFSA deadline is this SUNDAY, MARCH 15th! You can file with estimated numbers if you and/or your parent(s)/guardian(s) haven't filed taxes yet. Get it done!

Best of luck to all who apply, and good luck to all on your finals!

 

Here's one final reminder why life would be infinitely better if we went to Hogwarts:

cancelexam.gifBut alas, we are just mere muggles.

muggle.gif

With the winter term slowing down and registration in full-swing, you may have noticed that your spring schedule is looking a little bare. Perhaps you have a few hours between classes, days completely off of school, or are just looking to pick something else up. Look no further than student employment!

Check out the 6 W's of student employment and get applying!

WHO
You, silly! Well, or any student who is currently enrolled at MSOE. Graduates, undergraduates, incoming students, you name it! If you're an incoming student, keep in mind that you cannot start working until you have officially started classes.

WHAT
Student employment, of course! We have various opportunities to help fit your needs. Like an office atmosphere? Check out one of our office assistance positions! Like to tackle technology issues? The Help Desk or IT may be right for you. Like working with children? Boys and Girls Club or Discovery World may be right up your alley. Just remember, when jobs fill up we take them down from our site. So even if you don't see anything you like now, you may find something next month!

WHEN
RIGHT NOW!! Yes, you can apply for a job right after you read this! But in terms of working, MSOE offers academic year positions and summer positions, meaning you could potentially work year-round.

WHERE
Like I said above, you can either work on-campus or at one of our off-campus community service sites. For off-campus sites, we try to offer positions that are walking-distance to MSOE. Some positions do have multiple locations where students can drive or ride the bus to get to.

HOW
You can look for and apply for jobs at www.msoe.edu/workstudy. Just make sure you remember if you selected an academic year position or a summer position! Submit your application, complete an interview, get hired and then touch base with Human Resources for any paperwork you may need in order to start working.

WHY
Working on campus is fun, gives you great experience and you get that green stuff everyone keeps talking about... MONEY!

raining_money.jpg

So don't wait- apply today! Current open positions are as follows:

 

Boys & Girls Club- Academic Assistant/Tutor

Discovery World- Educational Aide

Milwaukee Center for Independence- Administrative Assistance/Data Entry Payroll

IT- Assistant Network Technician

IT- Assistant Systems Administrator


Hello,

Please take the time to read the following important updates from Financial Aid and Student Accounts:

  • Registration for the Spring is now live! Keep in mind the following points:
    • If you owe a balance, you will not be able to register. You may check your balance anytime online through your my.msoe.edu account. If you need to make a payment, you can also do that online via CASH Net. Instructions on how to do that, as well as how to grant a parent or other person access, can be found here.
    • Due to new federal regulations, students are only eligible to receive financial aid for any coursework that is in their academic track. Please see more information about this here, or contact the Financial Aid Office with questions.
    • In order to receive institutional aid from MSOE, including your MSOE Academic Scholarship, you must be full time. Full time is considered 12 or more credits. If you plan to register for less than 12 credits, please check with Financial Aid to see how your aid will be different for the spring.


  • FAFSA season is here as well. MSOE’s priority deadline is March 15th. You may file with estimated tax information for you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) and go back and update it later to ensure you have your FAFSA in by March 15th.
    • In conjunction with RCAS, we will be holding two opportunities for students to complete their FAFSA on campus. These will be on March 10th at 5:00 p.m. and March 13th at noon. Look for more information soon!
    • Not sure where to start? Check out our FAFSA Filing Checklist and 5 Tips to Avoid FAFSA Errors.


  • 1098-T forms are available and they are published online. You may access them via your my.msoe.edu account. Any questions regarding this form should be directed to Student Accounts.


  • While we are always promoting scholarships, this time of year is especially exciting. We are currently accepting applications for nine different scholarships that are exclusively for current MSOE students and have paid summer internships. Check out the latest Money Monday for more information.

If you're reading this, it means you made it through the weekend of dread; known to the general public as "Valentine's Day". Whether you were bouncing off the walls with excitement for your special date with your better half, drinking wine with your besties on Galentine's Day, or hunting for the chocolate sales on Sunday, there was something for everyone to celebrate.

 

galentines day.gif

 

With heart-shaped balloons a distant memory (but these hilarious valentine's day cards front-and-center), it's time to settle back down and focus on school, the upcoming break, and of course, getting free money. So while you're trying not to go crazy with senior design, projects, or just studying for finals, take a break and apply for one of these great scholarships!

Congratulations to all of the football fans out there; we have survived our first weekend without a game! In other news, Kanye West still feels the need to interrupt people accepting awards if they aren't Beyonce. Additionally, I learned that a lot of people on twitter don't know who Beck is. Overall, it was a solid weekend.

 

Monday is here though, but you know by now that means opportunities for you to win scholarships and internships. If you're feeling really lucky, the lottery is above 400 million (just remember your friendly financial aid counselor once you win ). But, you have a much better chance at winning one of these great scholarships to apply today!

Welcome to February! February is that annoying time of year when you are ready for spring but winter just won't give up (oh, hello, foot of snow!). But there are some good parts too: it goes quickly, you can notice the days getting longer, and sometimes Subway makes all footlongs $5 again #februany

 

It is also the time of year when MSOE Scholarships with internships tied to them come out in full force. There are eight new scholarships today, and 7 are specifically for current and/or incoming MSOE Students. This is the time you've been waiting for, so go out and apply!

Best of luck to all who apply!

Remember when I said last Monday was awesome? Well, remind me to never say something like that again because the depths to which this Monday has sunk is astounding. If you aren't a Packer fan, this is probably just a normal Monday for you. And if you're a high school student you probably even have off school for MLK Day. But for those of us who have to deal with the end of Packer season while being in class or at work, the struggle is real.

 

But, life must go on. So to make it better, here are some scholarships you can apply for now that your Sundays are freed up (cue sobbing again). Something else that could make you feel better (or continue to feel good if you already do) is an event we are having this week. Come learn about Scholarships and eat FREE PIZZA! #nomz All the details you need are here.

FAFSA season is officially upon us! Student and parents have had access to the 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid since January 1st, but many have not filed. If you're one of the thousands of students in the U.S. who hasn't filed a FAFSA yet, don't worry! Follow these tips to make sure your FAFSA is in tip-top shape. Remember: MSOE's FAFSA filing priority deadline is March 15th!

1. Gather your materials before you start.

You look at the clock and see you have an hour before your next class. You hop on www.fafsa.gov (not .com) and are furiously entering in your information. Not too far in, you start seeing things you don't know how to answer. Untaxed income? Net worth of business? What the heck do all these things mean and how were you supposed to know you needed to answer these types of questions?

Seriously- this happens more than you think. Looking back at the first time I filled out my FAFSA, I realize that it took me three times as long as it should have taken. Why? Because I didn't prepare with a FAFSA checklist before I sat down and dove into the application.

Thankfully for you, we have come up with a FAFSA Filing Checklist so you don't have to worry about being unprepared. Oh, and pro-tip for you returning students? An easy way to fill in a lot of the basics is to file a "FAFSA Renewal"- it will save you lots of time!

                           
2. Figure out who needs to be on the FAFSA.

This step is really a two-for-one deal. The first thing you need to do is figure out if you're considered a dependent student or an independent student. Many students and parents think that this categorization has to do with ones tax filing status or place of residence. This question- Am I dependent or independent- is not so simple. To help you gauge whether or not you will need to provide parental information on the FAFSA, we have our FAFSA FAQs: Am I Dependent or Independent? info-graphic for you to use.

So let's say you find out that you need to provide parental information. Do you know who you should put on the FAFSA? "My parents got divorced and dad got remarried but I stay with mom sometimes and I think maybe I put everyone. Or maybe I put just my mom?" Sound familiar? With parents getting divorced, remarried, or sometimes not even getting married in the first place, questions are plentiful. If you're confused, reference our FAFSA FAQs: Who is my Parent? info-graphic.

                           
3. Check and double-check.

While many of you may be tempted to get your FAFSA done as quickly as humanly possible, rushing through the FAFSA is a risk. Other than making sure that you have everything filled out, there are areas of information that may become mixed up between you and your parent; a pretty bad situation if you ask me! So before you submit that FAFSA, really take the time to make sure all of the information is correct (I'm looking at you, "Cash, Savings and Checking"). A few minutes of review can save you weeks of headaches.

                         
4. Don't forget to sign.

The last step before your FAFSA is submitted- signing it! Whether you sign electronically by your Personal Identification Number (PIN) or print out a signature page and mail it in, this final step is crucial. If you did not sign your FAFSA upon submission, MSOE will reach out to you and let you know, because without that signature, it's a lot of information for us that can't be utilized.

                      
5. If all else fails, ask for help.

Whether you call the FAFSA Help Line at 1-800-433-3243 or stop in our office, know that you aren't alone. As much as the FAFSA has been streamlined, students and parents still have questions. So don't wait until you're pulling your hair out! Call us, email us, send us something on the HUB, or walk right in to get your FAFSA questions answered.
