Attention Parents of Graduating Seniors!
By now, your student should have made progress on several major milestones for life after TCS@ODU. Some of the things he or she should have completed by now include:
As of October 1st, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) became available for families to fill out. The majority of students are considered dependent, and the FAFSA will require parent information. If you have questions about your student’s dependency status, the student should see Ms. Konet to discuss his or her individual circumstances. A good goal to have is to file the FAFSA by mid-February. Some steps to get started include:
Please encourage your student to regularly check his or her TCS email during this last semester. There will be numerous surveys to gather information, including height/weight for ordering caps and gowns, announcements about tickets and meetings, and graduation progress. It’s extremely important that students stay current, and email is the most efficient system we have.
The first graduation meeting for the Class of 2017 will take place on Friday, February 17th, 2016 at 5PM.
Important aspects of graduation will be discussed, including details of the ceremony, graduation tickets, initial discussion of graduation speakers and graduation fees.
This meeting is taking place toward the end of parent-teacher conference day. If you have questions or concerns about your student's graduation progress, please come early to meet with Ms. Konet, our college counselor. She will be available for individual questions between noon and 4PM, but will not be available for private conversations after the meeting. Thank you!
