MS College Access Application Days will provide students the resources and tools to complete college applications online at a designated time during the school day. Students will be encouraged to apply to more than one school because of research that shows that increasing college applications from one to three increases the chance for college enrollment by 50%.
For information on how to establish Application Days in your school, contact Kierstan Dufour, Assistant Director for Get2College Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
