Now is the time to start completing college applications. Students can start applying for college as early as the summer before their senior year. Please be aware that some schools have specific application and scholarship deadlines; it’s best to check directly with your counselor, and the trade school, community college, or university to which you are applying.
Students needing assistance completing applications may contact Kelly Johnson at the ISD or your College Advising Corps member, where available.
Michigan College Month
Each October, Michigan College Month is part of the American College Application Campaign, a national initiative with the goal to provide every graduating high school senior the opportunity to apply to college and for financial aid. Special focus is placed on assisting students who would be the first in their families to attend college and students who may not have otherwise seriously considered applying to college.
Important note: During October, some application fees are waived.
Visit the Michigan College Month website or contact your local school counselor for more information.
