It’s College Application Month in Mississippi

Mississippi Governor Phi Bryant issued a proclamation recognizing October as College Application Month. In the proclamation, Gov. Bryant recognizes the importance of completing college applications as a step towards pursuing a postsecondary degree or credential. He also recognizes that a postsecondary degree or credential has been linked to higher income and better health. In the proclamation, Gov. Bryant encourages all public high schools to participate by having activities designed to increase the number of students who are applying to and enrolling in college. Some of the activities planned for students include Application Day, Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Days, and College Signing Day, which is designed to replicate the excitement of athletic signing days.
