WARREN, Mich. (August 12, 2019) – De La Salle Collegiate has received recognition from the Michigan Department of Treasury for achieving 100 percent completion rate for the 2019 Tuition Incentive Program application process.

According to the Student Scholarships and Grants (SSG) – within the Department of Treasury – only 49.8 percent of known Class of 2019 high school seniors statewide completed their required TIP application. All 185 graduates of De La Salle’s 2019 class submitted the necessary paperwork.

De La Salle is very proud of its success in informing students of their eligibility for state financial aid programs.

“This recognition is due to the efforts of our counseling department – Anthony Albani, Kim Balgenorth, Andrew Campbell, Jon Hickey and Dominic Reid,” said Christopher Dean, assistant principal for academics. “Throughout a student’s high school career, the office works very diligently to match a student’s interests with not only an appropriate college, but opportunities and strategies on how families can afford to pay for that college.”

As a way to demonstrate their appreciation and gratitude, SSG presented De La Salle with a certificate recognizing the school’s efforts and continued support in making sure students and families know college is accessible, affordable, and attainable.
