  • Computer certification classes begin | Schools and Education
    Posted by SD Nelson Mrkg Solutions

    Computer certification classes begin -

    Garrett College will be offering two computer certification
    classes this spring, including Network Fundamentals (Net+) and Security+.
    According to a recent article in the Washington Post, there are going to be
    50,000 cyber security jobs in the near future, and Maryland will have more
    than 19,000 of those job openings.



     



    Net+ teaches students the fundamentals and basics of the
    operations of computer networks. Through hands-on training, students will learn
    the vendor-independent networking skills and concepts that affect all aspects
    of networking. Topics include incentives for computer networking, popular
    network models, network media, theory and practice of LANs, and other
    networking concepts and skills, including: bridging, switching, routing and
    installing and configuring the TCP/IP client. The course also helps prepare
    students for CompTIAs Network+ Examination.



     



    Security+ teaches students to implement and monitor security
    on networks, applications, and operating systems, and respond to security
    breaches. Topics include securing network services, network devices, and
    network traffic. Students will acquire specific knowledge and skills with
    computer hardware, operating systems, and networks that are required to
    implement basic security services on any type of computer network. The course
    also helps prepare students for CompTIAs Security+ Examination.



     



    Both of these classes are being offered in the evenings to
    accommodate work schedules. Net+ will be scheduled on Tuesday evenings from 5
    p.m. to 9 p.m. Security+ will be on Thursday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30
    p.m. Classes will run from January 27 through May 12. Tuition will include the
    required textbooks and a voucher for the certification exam.



    For more information on these two
    computer certification courses, contact Richard Lewis, Assistant Professor of
    Computer Science and Information Technology, at 301-387-3052 or richard.lewis@garrettcollege.edu .

  • Debunking Myths about Financial Aid | 6:00pm - 9:00pm | Schools and Education
    Posted by SD Nelson Mrkg Solutions

    Debunking Myths about Financial Aid - Debunking Myths about Financial Aid, GC Offers Financial Assistance

    College Goal Maryland, a free event for everyone interested in getting answers and assistance with the financial aid process will be held at Garrett College on Thursday, February 5 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Room 205 in the Continuing Education building at the McHenry campus. In addition to receiving personalized one-on-one help with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), participants may enter to win one of two $500 College Goal Scholarships that can be used at any college or university. Maryland requires a processing deadline date of March 1 for the FAFSA.

    “With the right help, the FAFSA can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes. Each line in the income section is mapped to a line on the IRS form. Estimated results are immediate,” says Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid at Garrett College. “Finding the funding for a college education is often the first hurdle of earning the degree or certificate that the student is striving for. Our financial aid counselors attend regular training sessions so they can be equipped to help all applicants get the greatest amount possible to defray college expenses and to dispel some of the widespread myths about financial aid.”

    Don’t fall for these myths about Financial Aid, provided by http://www.studentaid.ed.gov.
    “I’m not going to bother filling out the FAFSA because…”

    Myth #1: “My parents make too much money, so I won’t qualify for aid.”

    Reality: There is no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid. Many factors besides income- from the size of your family to the age of your older parent – are taken into account. Your eligibility is determined by a mathematical formula, not by your parents’ income alone. Always remember, when you fill out the FAFSA, you’re also automatically applying for funds from your state, and possibly from your school as well. In fact, some schools won’t even consider you for any of their scholarships (including academic scholarships) until you’ve submitted a FAFSA. Don’t make assumptions about what you’ll get – fill out the application and find out for yourself.

    Myth #2: “Only students with good grades get financial aid.”

    Reality: While a high grade point average will help a student get into a good school and may help with academic scholarships, most of the federal student aid programs do not take a student’s grades into consideration. Provided a student maintains satisfactory academic progress in his or her program of study, federal student aid will help a student with an average academic record complete his or her education.

    Myth #3: “I’m too old to get financial aid.”

    Reality: Funds from federal student aid programs are awarded on the basis of financial need, not on the basis of age. Adult students can get financial aid, so be sure to fill out the FAFSA.

    Myth #4: “The FAFSA is too hard to fill out.”

    Reality: Most colleges require only the FAFSA in order to apply for assistance. Much of the information needed to fill out the FAFSA is found on family tax returns. On the 2015-2016 FAFSA students and parents are urged to use the new IRS Data Retrieval Tool that automatically pulls information from the IRS tax return and places the information in the correct FAFSA fields. In addition to the form's directions there is also online and telephone support available. The FAFSA can be filled out online and saved for future reference.

    Remember, College Goal Maryland at Garrett College is open to all students and families regardless as to what college they are applying to. All of our Financial Aid Representatives will be available for one-on-one assistance in filling out the FAFSA for students and families.

    More information is available by contacting VanSickle in the Garrett College Financial Aid Office at 301-387-3083 or cissy.vansickle@garrettcollege.edu.To register in advance for the College Goal Maryland event, persons may visit http://www.studentaid.ed.gov.


    PHOTO CUTLINE:

    The Financial Aid office at Garrett College is ready to assist anyone who is interested in applying for financial aid this year by filling out the FAFSA on College Goal Maryland, Thursday, February 5 from 6 pm to 9pm in Room 205 located in the Continuing Education building on the McHenry campus. From left to right are Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid, Pamela Warnick, Assistant Director of Financial Aid, Andrew Harvey, Financial Aid Counselor, and Kathy Fauber, Financial Aid/Veterans Affairs Counselor.

  • March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month | Reminders
    Posted by SD Nelson Mrkg Solutions

    March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month -

    Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the
    United States and a leading cause of death from cancer. Colorectal cancer affects all racial and
    ethnic groups and is most often found in people ages 50 and older.

    The best way to
    prevent colorectal cancer is to get screened regularly starting at age 50. There are often no signs
    or symptoms of colorectal cancer thats why its so important to get screened.

    To
    increase awareness about the importance of colorectal cancer screening, The Town Planner
    is proudly participating in Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

    People over age 50
    have the highest risk of colorectal cancer. You may also be at higher risk if you are African
    American, smoke, or have a family history of colorectal cancer.

    Everyone can take
    these healthy steps to help prevent colorectal cancer:

    Get
    screened starting at age 50. Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke. Get
    active and eat healthy.
