A program which gives qualified students within the Nicolet College district money to attend classes is again offering the program.
Under the Nicolet Promise program, the college Foundation will pay the balance of tuition and fees for eligible students after federal and state grants have been applied. The Foundation will cover this cost for up to 15 credits per semester over four fall and spring semesters.
Nicolet Director of Enrollment Erika Warning says students need to begin the process to be considered...
"...the main two criteria, the deadlines that are coming up are completing an application for admission for admission and the free application for federal student aid, which is the 20017-18 application by December 15.Students need to do those first two criteria and other ones to be considered eligible students...."
Warning says the program encourages young adults to stay in the Northwoods at a time when many leave seeking opportunity elsewhere.
This fall, 54 area high school graduates enrolled in Nicolet tuition-free. More information is on the Nicolet College website or at the Welcome Center desk.
Nicolet College serves all of Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties and portions of Lincoln, Langlade and Iron counties.
