Minnesota Goes to College
Formerly Minnesota College Knowledge Month, Minnesota Goes to College consists of two state-wide college-going campaigns: College Knowledge Month, Minnesota’s college application campaign and Minnesota College Goal, our state’s FAFSA-completion effort, which organizes free events for students and families to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The goal is to provide every graduating high school senior with the preparation, opportunity, and support needed to apply to college, especially underrepresented students (students of color, first-generation students, and low-income students.
To support these efforts, volunteers are needed to directly assist the registered high school sites that have requested volunteer assistance in carrying out Minnesota Goes to College activities or events. This is an exciting initiative for MACAC and allows our members to engage in the support of our colleagues as they guide underrepresented students in the transition from high school to postsecondary education. You are highly encouraged to participate!
