Illinois College App Month

PDF of October 2013 College Application Month Proclamation

Governor Pat Quinn has proclaimed October 2013 to be College Application Month.

As part of the American Council on Education’s national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a postsecondary credential (http://www.acenet.edu/about-ace/special-initiatives/Pages/ACAC.aspx), Illinois is participating  in the American College Application Campaign. It is the intent of the campaign to encourage students who typically apply to college late in the process, or who don’t apply at all, to apply in a timely manner.

To join the growing number of College Application Month sites please register your  high school for a 2013 Illinois College Application Month event, fill out the Registration Form.
