The 2020-21 on-campus housing application process for current students begins on February 5, 2020. Look for additional information in the mail regarding this process or visit the Residence Life website.
Applying for scholarships is a key part of the financial aid application process each and every year, so make sure that your student is aware of the Financial Aid Office’s Scholarships Web page. Both Penn College Scholarships and external, or private, scholarships are featured on the site.
Students submit one Penn College Scholarship application in order to be considered for every Penn College Scholarship for which they meet the donor eligibility criteria. Refer to the site for information on the application period and how to apply. Awarding begins in early March so it is crucial for students to meet our March 1 priority submission deadline. The scholarship application will be available on December 1, 2019.
Many community foundations, professional organizations, and businesses offer external scholarships. The Financial Aid Office recommends students and parents review the extensive list on our Scholarships Web page periodically throughout the autumn and winter, and into the following spring. Students should apply for every individual scholarship for which they meet the eligibility criteria. Pay close attention to procedures and deadlines.
The site also has two legitimate scholarship ‘search engines’ to further expand the scholarship search. Contact the Financial Aid Office with any scholarship questions!
Thanksgiving is near and your student will be home for the holiday! Turkey, mashed potatoes, pie, and oh by the way…”pack me up all the leftovers to take back to school – I’m running low on my declining/flex dollars.” While most students have plenty of meals, flex, or declining balance dollars to get them through the end of the semester, it is not uncommon for some students to add a few extra dollars to their plan at this point in the semester.
If you need to add funds to your students account follow our Parent/Guest Add-on Process.
You do not need to be registered for GET and this process can be completed even if your student has not registered for GET.
STEP 1 - Navigate to https://get.cbord.com/penncollege/
STEP 2 - On the sign in screen, click on the link below the Parents, Guardians or Other Relatives heading
STEP 3 - Follow the on screen instructions to add funds. You will need the following to complete your transaction:
The end of the semester also brings some questions as to what happens to unused meals and funds. All dining plans (board, block or declining) are semester based and end at close of business on Friday, December 14. Here is what you can expect.
If you or your student have Dining Plan questions or about GET, contact the Dining Services office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-327-4767. Oh and go ahead and send those leftovers as well, everyone LOVES leftovers!
