College APP Week

September 17-21, 2018

 

  We will assist you with locating and filling out the applications for your chosen school.  Remember over 500 colleges and universities utilize the Common Application.

 

What is College Application Week?

  • The primary purpose of this effort is to help high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process.
  • The application process can be daunting, even for students surrounded by a support system of caring adults.
  • Host sites set aside time and space during the school day with computer and Internet access. Paper applications are acquired where necessary.
  • Most sites also include activities for students that aren’t seniors in an effort to continue building a college-going culture in the community.
  • The American College Application Campaign is a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential.

How parents can play a role in College App Week:

If your student is a senior:

  • Talk to your student about where he/she wants to apply to college.
  • If your student doesn’t have a credit card, they may need your card to submit the application fee.
  • Consider volunteering at your student’s school during College App Week.
