    Ms. Brennan will also be outside on the following days and times, if you would like to drop off items then:

    Where:  East parking lot entrance, tables will be outside

    STEM-Focused College Webinar Thursday, February 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Do you plan to pursue STEM in college?  Many students pursue STEM majors in college for the wrong reasons and are often unaware of the specific skills and experiences to cultivate in order to be competitive for college admission, internships, and jobs in these areas. Join Dr. Mark Hofer for an introductory talk on the STEM college application and admissions process. This seminar is most helpful for parents of freshmen and sophomores, but families of juniors will find it useful, too.

    RSVP: This is a free online class sponsored by the Phinney Neighborhood Association PNA.  Contact Mark at mark@yourcollegematters.com for webinar link and password.

    Dr. Hofer received a doctorate in education and a master’s degree in teaching from Seattle University.  He is a graduate of UC Irvine’s College Counseling program and is one of only four Certified Educational Planners (CEP) in Washington state.  For the past ten years, he has been the college admissions advisor and taught leadership for the Bezos Family Foundation in Seattle.  With other degrees in the sciences, Mark has also worked in psychology, physiology, biology, chemistry, physics, and aerospace research labs and has taught high school science and psychology.


    REMINDER. The deadline for students to complete both their Seattle Promise and Seattle Colleges application is February 1st. Please make sure you apply for the scholarship. Remember this scholarship will pay for 2 years or up to 90 credits at North, Central or South Seattle College. Online instructions and application forms can be found here. Seattle Colleges also have application workshops where one is able to receive assistance in completing their application. You may also contact Kelsey Peronto if you need assistance or have any questions:  206-934-4714 or Kelsey.Peronto@Seattlecolleges.edu

    Students who submit a Seattle Colleges application may see a delay in receiving confirmation that their application was received. This is due to delayed processing in the admissions offices at the Seattle Colleges. If you believe that you have completed your application but haven’t received a confirmation, you can double check that your application was submitted with the following steps: Students can double check if their Seattle Colleges application was submitted by logging into the web admissions center and clicking “Review Application History” on the top right. If it says “Application Form Submitted” to either North, Central or South Seattle College, they are all set!
