We are passing along this message about the Wisconsin Covenant from our friends at the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. High school seniors who signed the Covenant can receive up to $10,000 in grants for postsecondary education if they act quickly and complete the following two steps by April 1:
For what it’s worth, we highly recommend that students file these forms well before April 1, in order to be eligible to receive other state funds, like the Wisconsin Tuition Grant (for those attending Wisconsin’s private colleges) or the Wisconsin Higher Education Grant (for those attending Wisconsin’s public colleges).
If you have applied for Regular Decision admission to Lawrence, our system is entirely up to date with all documents we have received. Please check your Voyager account to see if your application is complete (if you haven’t done so already).
If you see that something is missing, don’t fret: you have until the end of this week (February 10) to get your materials in and still be considered in this round of Regular Decision admission. For questions or a friendly “It’s on the way!” feel free to contact your Lawrence admissions counselor via our nifty counselor-o-matic.
Our data entry team is still hard at work matching up the thousands of documents we received in the week leading up to our Regular Decision deadline (which was, in hindsight, not too strategically placed on a Sunday).
If you’re checking your Voyager account and still see as “missing” items you know you have sent, trust yourself and the process. Your stuff is most likely here just waiting to get matched up with your application. Once we’re caught up enough to know where we stand, we’ll get in touch with you if we’re still awaiting items from you. More important, we’ll give you some time to complete your application.
In the meantime, please know that we’re happy you have applied, and hope to share good news with you in March.
Stevie Wonder fans should be able to put the symbols to music.
Kudos to The Noun Project for the icons. (IHRTLUHC*)
*I hereby reaffirm the Lawrence University Honor Code.
We know we said we’d notify Early Action applicants on January 30, but our data entry team really hustled over the past week to process all of our decisions, so we’re planning to drop our letters on January 25, a little ahead of schedule.
We still do things the old-fashioned way: our decisions go via First Class postal mail. (There’s still something to be said about good admissions news coming in big envelopes.) So even though our decisions will be leaving here on Wednesday, please allow time for them to arrive in your mailbox.
(And if you’re wondering, ice and ibuprofen really help soothe a hand after signing piles of admission letters.)
