WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Hi! I’m Jeffrey and I’m a senior at Austin Peay State University studying studio art and marketing. I’m currently the marketing intern for Nossi College of Art! So over the next couple of months, you’ll get a chance to read some of my blogs for this wonderful institution.     What you need to know about scholarships at Nossi! If you’re like me and 85% of other college students financial aid is key to attending college*. Learning about all the scholarships and how to apply can seem daunting, but don’t worry! I’ve made it easier for you. At Nossi, Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. Financial Aid programs include Federal Pell Grants, Direct Loan Programs, Social Security and United States Department of Veterans Affairs programs, Tennessee Student Assistant Awards and Federal Direct (Parent) PLUS loans. Even after reading this, you can get EVEN MORE help from our financial aid office site by scheduling a one on one meeting! Step 1: FAFSA The very first thing you have to do to receive any financial aid is to fill out a FAFSA. This is so both the government and the school know how much assistance you really need. It’s pretty easy to fill out. If you are a dependent of your parents you will need their tax information for the previous year (think their W2). You can access the FAFSA site here and when prompted, enter Nossi College’s code: 017347 After you submit the FAFSA, the school and the government will be notified…

Life After Service: Back to School Guide for Veterans

WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Exclusively written for nossi.edu by Allie Cooper After an honorable discharge, many veterans decide to go to college or university to complete their advanced education. Not all skills learned in the military are transferrable to a career, so getting a higher education can make you more competitive and desirable in the civilian job market. Nossi College has a variety of degree programs, which are perfectly suited for real-world experiences. Veterans face a variety of challenges during their educational pursuit after the military, like finding the right school and staying afloat financially, all while working towards a degree with career potential. However,, there are numerous options for financial assistance, from the Post 9/11 GI Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program, and a variety of other grants and scholarships. In a higher education feature for military veterans, Accredited Schools Online claim that over 1 million veterans have taken advantage of the Post-911 GI Bill. The bill allows veterans to have anything from 40% to 100% of their school expenses paid. While it may be a daunting task to select an institution and a specific degree, keep in mind that a practical degree with hands-on training can be more advantageous than a theoretical degree. Therefore, a degree in art & design, photography or graphic design might be good choices for finding sought after careers. Military personnel have experience handling advanced technology, which can be a smooth transition to degree programs offered at Nossi College utilizing advanced tech and software.

Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness.

Davis Early Learning Center is a child- and family-centered public preschool. What’s unique about this preschool is the children’s growth and development are supported through the studies of the Creative Curriculum. Each day, students focus on literacy, math, social studies and science while also receiving social and emotional learning through experiences in the garden, the library and art classes. Teaching students through STEAM is very important for Nossi College and we were thrilled to stock their classroom with markers, crayons, crafting supplies and plenty of glue to hold it all together!

Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta encourages families to visit and play often and to be engaged in their student’s life – both in and out of the classroom.
