Occasionally, folks may inadvertently go to the Embry-Riddle Worldwide section and that is what will cause confusion.
We expect these different sections to become fully integrated, but as of now operate under different systems.
I apologize for the confusion and will take steps to make the process clearer.

Be part of our first International Fair at Paxon. This fair will bring together the many cultures and richness of diversity that makes our school unique. This event will take place on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 on our campus from 2:00-5:00 pm.
We would like to extend an invitation to parents and students to participate and to contribute in this endeavor. The contribution can be in many ways. For example, a group can create an exhibit or a booth about a country, culture or ethnicity, or can have some sort of performance such as plays, songs, dances or declamations depicting a culture. More information about how you can participate can be found outside Student Services.
We would love to know about possible contributions to the fair as soon as possible but not later than December 9th so we can plan accordingly. Even though we are weeks away from this event, it is the perfect time to start looking ahead. In doing so, all of us will be ready for our international fair on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017.

This event will happen on November 18 at UNF in the College of Education and Human Services building in room 1100A. Interpreters are being provided for the event. Interpreting is one major that students often select after having taken American Sign Language classes at their high schools but there are several other majors for which ASL is utilized.
The University of Florida would like to share our FAFSA Resources for High Schools.
The UF FAFSA Toolkit includes videos, FAQs, morning news scripts, links and other helpful information to assist high school counselors, teachers and administrators explain the financial aid process and inspire students to apply for financial aid for college.
Please visit the UF FAFSA Toolkit at http://www.sfa.ufl.edu/fafsa/
Completing the FAFSA is the first step toward getting financial aid for college or career school. The FAFSA not only gives students access to the $150 billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds that the federal government has available, but many states, schools, and private scholarships require you to submit the FAFSA before they will consider you for any financial aid they offer. That’s why it’s important that every college-bound student complete the FAFSA as soon as possible.

Interested in improving life on earth? Wentworth now offers two majors to lead students toward this goal.
Our current Biomedical Engineering major is focused on medical devices and systems. Our new major, Biological Engineering integrates the physical sciences, math and engineering with cellular and molecular biology.
While both majors have some similarities, they are also very distinct at Wentworth. You can learn about the differences here. Information is also available on all of our engineering majors at www.wit.edu/cet.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your thoughts or if you would like additional information. An admissions counselor is always available to speak to you at 617-989-4000.
Thanks in advance for sharing this information with your students.
