Reminder from Temple Admissions

Greetings from Temple Admissions! 

With the holidays approaching, we wanted to thank you for your continued support in encouraging students from your school to apply to and enroll at Temple University. This is a busy time of year for all of us and we are looking forward to a refreshing holiday break. 

We wanted to remind you and your students that Temple now requires first-year applicants to self-report their high school courses and grades using our Self Report Transcript Tool. The tool is only accessible through an applicant’s online TUportal account. Once a student applies, they need to log into their portal and complete the required next steps. 

Please encourage your students to log in and check their TUportal account today! And please reach out to us with any questions. Our office is open Monday—Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. through December 21 and will re-open on January 2. 

Thank you again for your support and we look forward to working with you!

Boston University Financial Aid Information

Dear Colleague:
We would like to remind you that Boston University's financial aid application deadline is January 2, 2019. We encourage all students and their families to explore opportunities for financial assistance.
Boston University requires applicants to file two forms:
  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • CSS Profile
    • Please note that if a student's parents do not share the same household, the parent who does not live with the student must also complete a CSS Profile. If getting that parent to complete a CSS Profile will be impossible, the student must submit a CSS Profile Waiver Request for the Noncustodial Parent.
We offer several Tips for Completing the Profile and FAFSA on our website. Please encourage your students to read the acknowledgement emails they receive from the Profile and FAFSA processors after filing these forms. These emails may include additional steps that must be taken to complete their financial aid applications.
Students who apply for financial aid by January 2 can expect to receive a financial aid decision with their admission decision in late March.
If you or your students have questions about Boston University's financial aid process, please contact BU Financial Assistance at or 617-353-2965. I truly appreciate your help in making this important information available to your students.
Julie Wickstrom
Executive Director of Financial Assistance
P.S. We are hosting a Financial Aid online chat on Tuesday, December 18 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to answer questions about the financial aid application process. Please encourage your students and their families to attend.

RaiseMe and PSATs

Hey there, happy Wednesday!

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are having a nice to start to the week. We know that students' scores for the PSAT will be released next week and wanted to let you know that we made this lesson plan to help your students interpret their scores.

Having your students add PSAT scores to their RaiseMe accounts is a great way to show your students that their hard work is paying off AND will motivate them before winter break! If you didn't see our last note, we also launched a parent portal where your parents can monitor the progress of their students over the holidays :).

The 2019 New Jersey Junior Science & Humanities Symposium at Rutgers University

We are pleased to invite you and your school to participate in the Rutgers University Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, a science fair for high school students interested in science, mathematics, and technology research.  Students who have undertaken their own scientific research, underclassmen who intend to conduct research in the future, and high school teachers are invited to attend our symposium on the campus of Rutgers University’s School of Engineering in Piscataway, NJ.  This year’s Symposium will take place March 4 - 5, 2019. 
Students who have conducted scientific research submit research papers to the competitive portion of our program. These students must submit abstracts of 200 words or less detailing their work by December 1, 2018. By December 15, 2018 students must also submit a short video (2 minute maximum) presenting their answers to the following questions: (1) What did you know about your research? (2) What did you not know about your research? (3) Why is your research important? They then must submit full research papers of their work by January 4, 2019 (All Teacher/Student Registrations are due on January 4, 2018 as well).  Based on the research papers, our panel of judges selects up to 20 of the top students as Finalists, who are chosen to give oral presentations of their work at our symposium in March. 
The judges will also select up to 50 other students as Poster Finalists, who will give poster presentation of their work at our symposium. Oral Finalists compete for up to 3 all-expense paid trips to the 2019 National Symposium, as well as Scholarships of $2,000; $1,500; or $1,000. The top 2 Poster Finalists compete for 2 all-expense paid trips to nationals and additional prizes.
Students who have not yet conducted research or are just beginning projects are welcome to attend the symposium as observers. On the first day of the symposium (March 4, 2018), all student researchers and sponsoring teachers participate in the symposium. On the second day (March 5, 2018), all student researchers, observers, and sponsoring teachers participate in the symposium. The first day will consist of the run-off presentation of the 20 oral finalists. At night, students will be treated to a formal dinner recognizing their scientific achievements, hear from a keynote speaker, and take part in team based math, science, and engineering challenges.  On the second day, the 5 oral finalists from the first day and 50 poster presenters will compete and prizes will be awarded.
