Michigan College Month

  • Michigan College Month is a part of the American College Application Campaign, a national initiative with the goal of providing every graduating high school senior the opportunity to apply to college and for financial aid through completion of the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA).

    During the month of October, the following activities will occur at every DPSCD high school

    • Opportunities for every senior to complete at least one college application. 
    • Virtual Informational sessions with college admissions reps 
    • Virtual College Visits 
    • Virtual Financial Aid Night  
    • Virtual Financial Aid Workshops 
    • School-wide college awareness activities 

    Financial Aid & Detroit Promise Scholarship Night - The Office of Guidance & Counseling will host a district-wide Financial Aid & Detroit Promise Scholarship Information session for seniors and their parents on Tuesday, October 6 at 6:00 pm via TEAMS.  Students and families can join this live session at http://bit.ly/DPSCDFinancialAidInfo

    Financial Aid Sessions: Throughout the month of October, Counselors and College Transition Advisors will hold office hours and Financial Aid workshops to assist students and families with completing their online FAFSA.

    Engaging All Students: During school-wide morning meetings and classroom guidance lessons, all Counselors & CTAs are asked to engage students in conversations around the topics “What is college?” (K-5), “College Options” (6-8), & “College Planning” (9-12). 

    Rep Your College:  In recognition of Michigan College Month, all staff are asked to wear their college gear (t-shirts, hats, etc.) on Friday, October 9, 2020.
