October is College Knowledge Month

College Knowledge Month is a statewide program to help students explore their career and college options, plan for life after high school and complete college applications.

The goal of College Knowledge Month is to provide every graduating senior with the opportunity to learn about and apply to college, and to encourage younger students to start planning for life after high school. While much of the focus of College Knowledge is geared toward first-generation, low-income students, we encourage all students to participate in events to help them explore and prepare for post-secondary education, including certificate programs, two-year and four-year degrees.
