    There will be a financial aid webinar on Thursday, October 8th, at 6 p.m.  This event is hosted by the financial aid office at Bloomsburg University.  Marla Kane, Assistant Director of Financial Aid, will be presenting the material. Please note that this webinar is not just for future Bloomsburg University students.  All students who will be attending post-secondary education should register for this event.  This webinar takes the place of our traditional financial aid night that was hosted in the library each year. 
     
     
    I strongly encourage you and your parents to register for this event.  This is the best way to hear the most up to date information about the FAFSA and to get your questions answered about financial aid.  

     

    Topics to be discussed include:

    •             The FAFSA

    •             PA State Grant

    •             Loans

    •             Ways to pay

    •             Scholarships

    •             Q and A session

    Starting in the 2018/2019 school year, students will be required to complete a job shadowing experience as their graduation project. Students can complete their job shadowing anytime during grades 9th-11th.   The required paperwork is available on the left-hand side of this page.


     

    PROCEDURE FOR DROP/ADD

     

    There will be eight class periods per day, and one lunch period will appear on each student’s schedule.  All classes meet five periods per week.  A student is required to remain in a course, whether required or elective, for its full term.

     

    Written permission must be received from ALL of the following:

    Student’s parent.

    Teacher whose class student is dropping.

    Teacher whose class student is entering.

    Guidance counselor.

     

    Up to four weeks:  A student may drop a full year course with the above permission.  The student must schedule another course.  The course dropped is removed from the student’s transcript

     

    Four weeks to nine weeks:  A student may drop a full year course with the above permission.  The student must schedule an equivalent course.  The course dropped is noted on the student’s transcripts as a withdrawal (W) for final grade and the course average will be the first marking period grade on the report card.  Credit will be adjusted accordingly.  The grade earned will be counted toward honor roll calculations, but will not be counted in either annual GPA or class rank.

     

    Second to fourth marking periods:  Any student requesting to be transferred to a different course during this time must put the request in writing stating why he or she should be transferred to a different course.  A committee will review this request.  Should approval be granted, the student will be given a withdrawal (WP or WF) dependent upon the average at the time of withdrawal.  The course dropped will not be counted in either annual GPA or class rank.
