Montana College Application Week 2012
November 12-16, 2012
The American Council on Education (ACE) invited Montana to join the American College Application Campaign, a national effort to increase access to higher education.
During the week of November 12-16, 2012, high schools across Montana are invited to join this campaign and help their students see that college is possible. Dedicating time in school for high school seniors to prepare for and complete a college application opens the door for students to take an important step toward college.
Did you know? College Application Week:
- Helps students who might be the first in their families to attend college
- Helps students who have not yet seriously considered going to college
- Gives students the confidence and encouragement that college is possible
All high schools are welcome to participate!
