College Application Day: Oct. 28
Across the state, schools will be hosting College Application Days where all seniors are encouraged to complete at least one college application. Remember, that can be to any education you'll need after you graduate: two- or four-year college, an apprenticeship, a workforce certificate to work in your field, etc.
Although the state suggests October 28 for College Application Day, your school may have another date. Check with your counselor!
