Save the Date: New York College Application Week Set for Oct. 26-30

(May 2015) New York’s 2015 College Application Week (CAW) is scheduled for October 26-30, 2015. Last year, more than 200 high schools and community groups across New York helped more than 7,300 students submit nearly 17,000 college applications.

CAW participants work primarily with students who would be the first in their families to attend college, are from low-income families, or who may not have seriously considered college because they mistakenly believe they cannot afford or would not be accepted into college.

HESC provides participating schools with plans and support for college application events held during the school day so you can help guide your students through what can be a confusing process.

Join this national campaign and encourage your students to complete at least one college application.
