October is College Knowledge Month

College Knowledge Month – October

The goal of College Knowledge Month is to provide every graduating high school senior with the preparation, opportunity, and support needed to apply to college with additional emphasis on creating opportunities for first-generation, low-income and underrepresented populations of our student body.  Various events will be held throughout the month of October.   

Many Minnesota colleges may waive the $20 application fee during the last week of October.  See attachment for details.

In support of College Knowledge Month during October, the following activities have been planned:  


  • Senior Info Help Sessions:  During September, Counselors will have met with seniors during Advisory or by individual requests to discuss credits and post-secondary plans
