October is “College Knowledge Month,” a statewide effort to provide every graduating high school senior, especially underrepresented students, with the opportunity to apply to college.
“Our colleges and universities are committed to making sure every Minnesotan has access to an extraordinary education,” said Steven Rosenstone, MnSCU chancellor. “College Knowledge Month is a wonderful opportunity for us to encourage more high school seniors to apply for college. It gives our colleges and universities an opportunity to show students who might otherwise think college is beyond their reach that resources are available to help them pay for higher education and complete their degree.” (9/26 Press Release by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities).
Are you ready? Many Minnesota State Colleges and Universities are waiving their application fees for the week of October 27-31. Learn more about colleges and universities waiving application fees, find free resources for high schools to use and more on College Knowledge Month at our support page.
