    Terry Bland, director of Financial Aid announced that Financial Aid workers will be in the Haraway Center, Room 104, and on the other campuses to assist students with financial aid questions during registration. On the Senatobia campus, Financial Aid workers will be in the Haraway Center during registration from Aug. 13-16, but will return to their office in Yalobusha Hall, Suite 103 on Aug. 19.

    Early Bird Admission Days for adults and Veterans will be held Tuesday, July 23 and Tuesday, August 6 with extended hours from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. at the main Senatobia campus for students planning to attend any Northwest location or take classes online. This special admissions event will afford participants the opportunity to apply for admission, get help for financial aid and sign up for classes all in one day.
    Interested adults and Veterans must bring the following documents in order to participate in Early Bird Admission Days: official high school transcript or GED, official college transcript(s) (if they have previously attended any other college) and completed 2012 tax return. Veterans should also bring their Certificate of Eligibility. Transcript requests from colleges and high schools can often take up to two weeks, so interested participants should request official transcripts as soon as possible. Any Mississippi residents with out-of-state transcripts will need to provide proof of residency.

    As of this date, all Northwest residence halls are full, and there is a waiting list, according to the Northwest Housing office.
