Kalamazoo Valley Community College has invited Gull Lake High School to bring out a group of seniors who are planning on attending KVCC next fall to visit their campus. The trip will take place on Friday, May 3.
The visit is intended for graduating seniors who are not participating in early college. During the trip, participants will have an opportunity to tour the campus, meet with an academic advisor, register for fall classes and attend a break out session to talk about financial aid and TIP eligibility.
According to the Michigan government website, the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) is an incentive program that encourages eligible students to complete high school by providing tuition assistance for the first two years of college and beyond.
The visit will be excused as school related for students who attend. A bus will be provided for transportation and lunch will be supplied.
“This is a great opportunity for you as seniors to make sure your plans are set for the fall at KVCC,” high school counselor Jayne Stover said.
Interested students had to contact Mrs. Stover earlier in April. Students can also visit KVCC on their own time to visit with college counselors and schedule classes for the next school year.
