    Dear Berea-Midpark Students and Parents,
     

    We at College Now are pleased to assist you with your college financial aid and scholarship planning.

    • Aid in the exploration of available financial aid resources for college, including scholarships, federal loans, work-study, and
    • private loans,
    • Provide waivers for college application fees or SAT/ACT tests if the family meets College Now financial guidelines,
    • Interpret Student Aid Reports and evaluate college financial aid award letters, and
    • Recommend seniors for scholarships administered by College Now (must meet GPA, ACT/SAT test score, and income
