From Oregon? File 2015-16 FAFSA now

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

It is that time of year for all students to file their 2015-16 FAFSA, but for undergraduate students from Oregon, it is especially important that you file before the end of January. Each year funding for the Oregon Opportunity Grant runs short for students who would otherwise qualify. The Oregon office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) oversees this program and must limit funding to early eligible FAFSA filers.

When you submit in January, it is not necessary to have your federal taxes filed. Simply estimate your 2014 income for you and (if dependent) your parents. Those that file in February will most likely not be considered for the grant which, for a full-time student, is $2,000.

Please don’t miss the potential help for your college costs! Click here to go to the FAFSA page.

Questions? Please email Terri Crawford at tcrawfor@georgefox.edu.

Rebecca’s work presents points where nature overcomes and reclaims –gradually or dramatically– human constructs. Rebecca creates energetic, abstracted visions that overflow with color and hidden life. At a distance, the stream emerges and the rock forms in a constant state of flux. The serenity of nature is simultaneously presented as mysterious and comforting; fascinating and awe striking; terrifying and instructive.
