UNL’s Open House for LPS Schools @ Animal Science Complex

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension is hosting its annual Open House for Lincoln Public Schools at 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 3, 2016, at the Animal Science Complex on UNL East Campus.

Middle and high school students interested in pursing a degree in animal science with a focus on companion animals, horses, or livestock, will have the opportunity to meet with our faculty and get information on majors and classes offered.

“The Open House is a great opportunity to learn how to connect your interest in animals to a college program and eventually your career,” Lisa Karr, Companion Animal Specialist, said.

“Students can learn about different aspects of animal science including nutrition, genetics, and health and get the opportunity to speak with professors and current students and experience hands on activities.”

Students will venture through the animal science building on a scavenger hunt for information.

They will also hear about the various animal-related organizations such as Equestrian team, Livestock and Horse Judging teams, Students for the Education of Exotic and Companion Animals, Pre-Vet Club, and Block and Bridle.

For more information, please contact Lisa Karr at 402-472-6458, (lisa.karr@unl.edu); or Lena

Luck at 402-472-9098, (lena.luck@unl.edu).

Cornell University

Beginning in fall 2016, undergraduate students who hold DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) status granted by the federal government will be considered domestic students by Cornell University for purposes of admissions and financial aid, and thus are eligible for need-blind admissions and need-based financial aid like any U.S. citizen or permanent resident. While federal and state financial aid (including grants, loans, and federal work-study) is not available for DACA students, Cornell University provides institutional financial aid in place of federal/state grants and loans; summer savings and academic-year work may be included in the financial aid package, and DACA students are expected to obtain federal work authorization as part of their federal DACA status. Undergraduate students with DACA status will be charged non-resident tuition. Cornell will extend financial aid eligibility to all DACA students enrolled at Cornell, including students newly enrolled as of fall 2016 as freshmen or transfers, and continuing students matriculated in prior years. You can read more at: https://admissions.cornell.edu/news/daca-students.

Beginning with the class enrolling in fall 2017, admissions decisions for international applicants and undocumented applicants without DACA status will be need-aware. This means that they will be evaluated for admission with consideration of the ability of students or parents to pay educational costs. International students who are admitted and demonstrate financial need will receive a financial aid package that meets 100% of their demonstrated financial need (Cornell University does not provide partial financial aid awards). International applicants and undocumented applicants without DACA status who indicate on their applications that they will not be applying for financial aid (and who are admitted) will not be eligible to apply for financial aid at any time as an undergraduate at Cornell. Applicants who anticipate the need for financial assistance at any point during their undergraduate course of study at Cornell must apply for aid when they apply for admission. To apply for the university’s need-based financial aid program, applicants must complete and submit the CSS Profile. Learn about the financial aid process for international applicants: http://finaid.cornell.edu/apply-aid/international-applicants.

Cornell’s new online resource that will provide a wealth of information for prospective students, families and counselors is MeetEzra, a searchable database of frequently-asked questions designed for students. Students may use it to learn about everything from the admissions process to academics to life on campus. To begin (or continue) exploring Cornell, check out MeetEzra today!
