Are Past-due Balances Keeping Your Students From Continuing Their Studies? By Ashley Fassell

Students on every campus run the risk of not being able to re-enroll for fall classes due to past-due balances. For graduates, an outstanding balance may prevent a student from receiving their diploma. For university personnel in the Bursar’s Office, Financial Aid, or the Business Office, the month of September is particularly active. Most students are back to continue their studies, but those with past-due account balances are unlikely to have returned to your campus.

MPOWER Financing launches first scholarship!

We have exciting news! We are thrilled to announce our first (of many) scholarships – the MPOWER Global Citizen Scholarship.

We will award three $1,000 scholarships to international and DACA students studying or planning to study in the U.S. The application is simple and can be completed in 30 minutQes or less. We invite your students to apply and encourage you to share with anyone you know who could use a little extra money to help with school. The deadline to apply is September 20, 2018.
