During this week over 100 Minnesota high schools will be conducting a variety of activities designed to promote college awareness and readiness among their seniors. One primary aim of this week is for every Minnesota high school senior to submit an application to at least one college or university. Many of these high schools have requested volunteers from Minnesota Colleges and Universities to support their Minnesota College Application Week activities by speaking to students about the college admission process, providing information about financial aid opportunities, and by assisting students to fill out applications.
More information and a list of participating high schools, along with a link to a volunteer website can be accessed at http://www.mn-acac.org/college-application-week. Please share this information with admissions and financial aid staff, counselors, advisors, and TRiO staff members who might be available to assist your local high schools during Minnesota College Application Week.
