Montana College Application Week (MCAW)
September 30- October 4Hellgate High School will be participating in Gear Up Initiative of Montana College Application Week during the week of September 30-October 4.What? High school seniors will have an opportunity to apply to college during the school day with many 2-year and 4-year colleges in Montana deferring or waiving their application fee during this week. Special focus is placed on assisting students who will be the first in their families to attend college and those who may not otherwise seriously consider applying to college.
Why? Montana needs more college graduates. Did you know in 2010 only 61% of Montana high school graduates enrolled in college in the fall semester immediately following graduation, and fewer than 50% of Montana’s high school graduates enrolled in the Montana University System? The majority of jobs require at least some postsecondary education. We want all Montana students to succeed in the 21st Century. An essential step in getting more college graduates is getting more Montana high school seniors to apply to college.For more information, check out: http://mus.edu/gearup/caw.aspMCAW Events
