Baker College Participates in Michigan's College Access Month
October 6, 2016
Baker College is excited to be participating in Michigan College Access Month (MCAM) as Governor Rick Snyder signs a certificate of proclamation that will bring major changes.
Michigan College Month first began is response to the significant changes to the FAFSA process that will be applied this year. Students will now be able to file for FAFSA using tax information from two years (opposed to one year) prior. This means that they no longer have to wait for their parents to file taxes before they can submit their financial aid applications. This process officially became available on October 1.
High schools across the state will host coordinated college application events as well as set time aside during the school day to give graduating seniors the opportunity to apply for college. Previously two separate campaigns, the state has also asked schools to combine their College Application Week and College Cash Campaign initiatives into a single Michigan College Month.
Baker College strongly supports Michigan College Access Month and the additional support and resources high school students will have when applying for post-secondary education. Learn more about MCAM here.
