Throughout August-December, high schools across the state will host College Application Day events to assist students with the college application process. The goal of College Application Month is to provide a forum for all South Carolina seniors to complete and file college applications.   While much of the focus of College Application Month is geared toward first-generation college students and students who may not otherwise apply to college, we encourage participating high schools to include activities for all students, including freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have already applied to college.

The College Application Month Initiative comes at a critical time in our state’s history.  Overwhelming evidence reveals that higher levels of education lead to greater prosperity and competitiveness in the knowledge economy.  However, South Carolina is well short of the national average and behind the national leaders in the proportion of adults who hold graduate/professional and baccalaureate degrees.  College Application Month is designed to expand statewide college access and awareness for all students in South Carolina just like you!

Now, click on the SCHOLAR tab above and begin applying and do not forget to complete the STUDENT SURVEY above when you are finished.  Remember to use the #CAMSC2023 when talking about College Application Month!

To help your students with beginning their applications outside of school, many of the state’s colleges and universities have developed videos on how to complete their application! Check it out below!
