October is Michigan College Month
Michigan College Access Network (MCAN) has declared October to be Michigan College Month. The goal of Michigan College Month is that by the end of October every graduating senior has submitted at least one college application, applied for at least one scholarship, and filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
In support of this event, the Career Tech Center (CTC) is hosting several college-themed initiatives:
- College Application Fridays–CTC seniors can receive assistance applying to the college(s) of their choice in the Future Center, room 121.
- College Gear Contests–Every Friday in October, students and teachers are encouraged to wear clothing featuring college, university, or trade school logos. The class with the highest number of participants will win a prize.
- College Essay Seminar–October 12, interested students can meet in the Future Center to learn how to craft a well-written application essay.
- Staff Spotlights– Every Monday in October, a staff member will be featured over the PA to raise awareness of the positive impact of postsecondary credentials.
- FAFSA Nights– Students and their parents can gather in the CTC Conference Room November 9-10, 2016 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. to receive assistance completing their FAFSA application.
NOTE: Students will need theirs and their parent’s Social Security Numbers and birth dates.
