Make the most of winter break

Winter break has arrived; let’s make it productive! There are many things you can do during your break to prepare for the start of the spring semester - classes resume as early as January 18, 2023.

New Students

  1. Apply. You can apply to Montco at any time. With the New Year upon us, it’s a great time to get started. Be sure to check Montco's dates and deadlines to ensure you don't miss registration, payments and more.
  2. Learn more about financial aid. Winter break is a great time to learn more about the resources at Montco, including financial aid. Check out helpful information about payment plans, grants, scholarships, work study, and more.

    Complete the FAFSA!
    What better time to complete the FAFSA than now! If you're starting classes this spring, make sure to complete the 2022-23 FAFSA to be eligible for aid.

  3. Visit campus virtually. You can still see all that Montco has to offer by watching our Pottstown Campus virtual tour and Blue Bell Campus virtual tour. You can virtually meet with an advisor during our extended drop-in hours and register for class. Please note, no drop-in advising sessions will take place December 24 through January 2 as the College is closed for winter break.
