The virtual event is free but registration is required at https://www.hsf.net/college-101.

“Getting information about attending college is more important than ever under our current circumstances,” said Seth Miner, director of Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation. “Programs like College 101 allow students and families to hear from universities the important information needed for going to college. Having representatives from multiple institutions allows students and parents to get a wide range of information.”

HSF College 101 identifies and addresses the various steps necessary to plan for a college education. NMSU officials will be panelists at HSF College 101, and sessions are focused on topics such as preparing for and applying to college, selecting a college, paying for college, writing a personal statement, researching financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and understanding the cost of a college education. The program is offered in English and Spanish.

“We are very grateful for our partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund as well as their invitation for NMSU officials to serve as panelists,” said Tony Marin, assistant vice president of student affairs.

This is the second of three virtual HSF college preparation workshops. More than 1,700 participants attended the virtual HSF College Camp in early November. For additional information, please contact the NMSU Aggie One Stop at 575-646-6678.
