College Application Month 2018

We are excited to share with you a revamped College Application Month (CAM)! CAM is a six-week boot camp to get students to identify career goals, research matching education programs and apply successfully regardless of their postsecondary path. This year's campaign will run from Sept. 17 through Oct. 31.

Colorado Free Application Day is Oct. 30

To inspire more Coloradans to continue their education, all 32 public colleges and universities in Colorado, and several private institutions, will allow students to apply for free on Tuesday, Oct. 30.

We have the tools for you to make this year's CAM the best ever.

  • Contest: Students who successfully complete all six weeks' activities and file the FAFSA plus at least one application will be eligible for a 529 scholarship worth $1,000
  • Educator Guide and Step-by-Step Directions for Students: Using CIC.org tools and resources, we've created a series of six lessons you can implement each week
  • CAM ICAP: a full ICAP template from which your students can navigate each week has been deployed online.
