Missouri College Application Week
The Missouri Department of Higher Education and the Missouri College Advising Corps will host College Application Week events at 26 high schools around the state beginning October 21, 2013. The Missouri College Advising Corps is made up of recent college graduates who work in high schools that have large percentages of students at risk of not going to college.
During Missouri College Application Week, the schools will designate a day when volunteers work one-on-one with students to complete college application forms. The event is open to all seniors at participating high schools.
The process of applying to college can be daunting, especially for first-generation college students, low income students and others who are underrepresented in higher education. Missouri College Application Week provides volunteers that will help students decide which colleges best meet their needs and fill out the admissions applications.
Missouri joins 24 other states that host College Application Week events. The program is part of the American College Application Campaign. The Missouri Department of Higher Education expects to expand the program in 2014.
This year the events will be held in the following schools:
Kansas City Area: Central High School, East High School, North Kansas City High School, Northeast High School, Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts Schools, Raytown High School, Raytown South High School, Ruskin Senior High School, Southwest Early College Campus, Van Horn High School, Winnetonka High School.
