‘Minnesota College Application Week’ waives fees for applying to public universities

“Minnesota College Application Week” encourages students to take a significant step toward college by providing assistance and building excitement for the application process. Sponsored by a network of K12, higher education and nonprofit partners, the goal is to give every graduating senior the opportunity to apply to college. The event is set for Nov. 12 through 17.

The week provides time and space to engage students in the college application and exploration process with a special focus on students of color, low-income and first generation students.

For more information about Minnesota College Application Week, students should talk to their counselors or visit the Minnesota Office of Higher Education at www.getreadyforcollege.org.
