By Michael Dabney

While their high school children practice for the SAT college entrance exam, parents will be able to receive other important information about how to prepare their children for successful college admission during a series of free workshops at the University of California, San Diego on Saturday, March 13.

In an event sponsored by UCSD’s Early Academic Outreach Program and the Princeton Review, high school students will take the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test), which is the practice test for the important SAT exam, from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Center Hall on the UCSD campus, 9500 Gilman Drive, La Jolla.

Also at Center Hall, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., parents can attend workshops to learn about: admissions requirements for the University of California and the California State University systems; important changes that will be made to the SAT affecting high school students entering college as early as 2006; college financial aid and scholarships available, and additional college-prep services offered by EAOP and Princeton Review.

Free parking will be available at UCSD’s Gilman Drive Parking Structure. For more information, contact Nicole Jackson at EAOP at njackson@ucsd.edu, or (858) 534-4250.
