Transylvania University KEE Camp

The Kentucky Education Experience (KEE Camp) is for rising seniors who are interested in college preparation workshops and resources. Students will stay on Transylvania University’s campus for 3 nights and participate in workshops for essay-writing, resume-building, interview skills, FAFSA, mock classes and more. They will also look into different scholarship opportunities. While the program is not restricted to these qualifications, it is targeted to students from underrepresented backgrounds, from low income homes, or students who would be first-generation college students.

The Kentucky Education Experience (KEE) Program at Transylvania University

Quick message about the Kentucky Education Experience (KEE) Program, which is being held on Transylvania’s campus this summer, June 24-27. The targeted student population is rising high school seniors (although we will consider rising juniors); and there is no GPA or test score requirement.  Students will stay on Transy’s campus for 3 1/2 days and participate in a variety of workshops and sessions including:

  • A case study on the admissions process
  • Mock classroom experiences
  • Essay writing
  • How to look for scholarships
  • Mock scholarship interviews
  • College fair
  • Panel of current college students

There is also a talent show, time for the students to have fun and enjoy being on a college campus, time in our recreational facilities and opportunities to explore downtown Lexington.

Applications are due by June 1 and require a copy of the student’s high school transcripts and one (1) recommendation to accompany the application. The fee is $50, but this will be returned to the student upon completion of the program.  (Ask me about a fee waiver for the student if that is needed.) All meals and residence hall facilities will be provided by Transylvania University.

If you or your students have any questions about KEE, feel free to contact me at jjohnson@transy.edu or 859-233-8242. Please share the application with your rising seniors and their families.

Morehead State University – Important Update!

Morehead State University announced Tuesday its plan to freeze tuition for the 2018-2019 academic year, despite the 6.7 percent budget cut that came from Frankfort during this year’s budget session. “Part of MSU’s dedication to student success is not just an experience that combines personalized attention and high-quality academic programs, but making that experience affordable to students and families,” said Dr. Jay Morgan, MSU president. We will continue to evaluate strategies and to look for ways to make higher education as affordable as possible to as many students as possible at Morehead State. Tuition per semester at MSU for full-time Kentucky residents is $4,475.

Additionally:

  • Accepted Seniors should submit their $150 enrollment deposit at www.moreheadstate.edu/confirm. Some students have been notified they have received a credit for their deposit, and can move forward in the enrollment process.
  • After paying the enrollment deposit, Seniors should register for new student orientation (SOAR)  – www.moreheadstate.edu/soar (deposit must be paid or credited prior to registration)
    SOAR dates include June  8, June 19, and July 17.
  • Seniors interested in living on campus should apply at www.moreheadstate.edu/housing Hall/room assignments and roommate selection is ongoing. Seniors who choose to reside off-campus must complete the exemption to housing form which is attached. Note: students must live within a 50 mile radius to be eligible for an exemption, and it will not affect their institutional scholarships.
  • Financial Aid award letters were mailed in November/December, and students can contact a Financial Aid counselor with additional questions http://www.moreheadstate.edu/Affording-College/Financial-Aid/Financial-Aid-Counselors.
  • Seniors can apply for additional scholarships at https://moreheadstate.awardspring.com/.Housing Waiver
