Looking for FREE College Applications?
Are you or someone you know interested in applying for college? The best week to do so is coming up– Michigan’s 5th annual College Application Week. From October 26-30 many Michigan college application fees are waived.
The Lenawee College Access Network (LCAN) sponsors College Application Week in partnership with the Michigan College Access Network and the American College Application Campaign. The goal of the program is to give every graduating senior the opportunity to complete at least one college application. Research shows that students who apply to 2-3 schools are 47% more likely to attend college. Post-secondary plans may also include students applying for apprenticeships, trade and technical schools, specialized training centers, and exploring military career options.
The counselors from Addison, Adrian, Blissfield, Britton-Deerfield, Clinton, Hudson, Madison, Morenci, Onsted, Sand Creek, Tecumseh High Schools and the LISD TECH Center are planning activities for College Application Week. The Lenawee College Access Network is supporting the local sites with trained volunteers. LCAN will also provide resources on post-secondary choices, trade and technical schools, financial aid, scholarships, and general career access information.
If your college or university is not offering a free application, students who have limited financial resources may be eligible for an application fee waiver when applying for college. The waiver helps ensure that access to college is possible for all students. It is for traditional high school students applying to attend postsecondary colleges or universities in the fall immediately following high school graduation. Contact your high school counselor for more details.
Parents are encouraged to support their senior student in making post-secondary plans at this time. Further details about College Application Week and LCAN are available by contacting your local school counselor, liking “LenaweeCAN” on Facebook, emailing LenaweeCAN@lenaweecf.com or calling (517) 423-1729.
