October marks the start of college application season and Washington Union’s College and Career Academy is making sure that WUHS students get all the support they need. Recently, the Academy hosted Fresno Pacific University. Not only did students receive help filling out their applications from admissions experts, but 28 students received fee waivers, making the application process completely free.
Fresno Pacific University is not the only college that will visit WUHS this year. The College and Career Academy will host Fresno State University, UC Merced, Fresno City College, and Reedley College as part of an on-going effort to assist students in filling out their applications. The Academy also hosted a FAFSA workshop in an effort to inform families about financial aid options, and plans to host another on October 25th. Known as “Cash for College,” the staff will provide assistance to families in filling out FAFSA forms. If you or your student has any questions about applying for college, please contact the College and Career Academy Office at (559) 495-5684.
