Great American Eclipse Viewing Party

Posted on August 14, 2017

Free viewing begins at 11:30 a.m. on MSUM campus 

The Great American Eclipse marks the first day of classes at Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM) Monday, Aug. 21. Most Americans with clear skies will be able to observe a total or partial solar eclipse. Fargo-Moorhead will experience a partial solar eclipse with just over 80 percent of the sun being blocked from view.

Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow that hits the Earth’s surface. Since it is never safe to look directly at the sun, MSUM’s Department of Physics and Astronomy is holding a viewing on campus.  Read the rest of this entry →

Public Service Loan Forgiveness webinars

Posted on July 17, 2017

Public Service Loan Forgiveness: What All Student Loan Borrowers Need To Know offered by American Student Assistance (ASA)

Wednesday, July 26 | 7:30-8:30 p.m. EST

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program forgives the balance of eligible federal student loans for borrowers who complete 10 years of eligible public service. This includes employees of many non-profit and government employers. Eligibility for this program is not based on what you do, but who your employer is.

Register Now

 

We also are offering another session that includes not only PSLF but the Teacher Loan Forgiveness program — which is another federal student loan benefit for teachers who work for a Title 1 school.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness: What Teachers Need To Know

Wednesday, July 19 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. EST

Recent comments from the federal Department of Education, along with our direct student loan borrower experience lead us to believe that many Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) and Teacher Loan Forgiveness eligible borrowers do not have a clear understanding of how these programs work or may not know of its existence at all.

Register Now

If you can’t make either of those webinar times, you can view a recorded version at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKzEmafuUR2Lcs0JIa5SiLw
