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.
We have the tools to make this year's CAM the best
- 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.
CIC Resources to Help with HB17-1041 Implementation
In August 2017, a law went into effect regarding educational
opportunities that lead to jobs. College In Colorado offers many
resources that you may use with students and add to their ICAP that
will help you meet these requirements.
Try the Middle School Activities
Students may log into their portfolio to check out activities
designed specifically for middle schoolers. Explore Directions
After High School and the Career Clusters Map. These activities
help students learn about options after high school graduation, to
map out possiblities for career areas and rank the ones they like
best! May be added to ICAP pages.
The milestone tracking capability and reporting includes the
ability to define a set of milestones at the school level or by
individual milestones to monitor student work. There are multiple
filtering options at both the school and district reporting
levels. Review how you can generate in-depth analyses
through the updated milestone features.
Batch Account Creation
The School Finance Act of 2009 specified that each 6th grade
student have a CollegeInColorado.org account. With enhancements to the process, it is easier than
ever to mass-create College In Colorado student accounts and
greatly reduce any additional burden these requirements may
Creation of multiple accounts is done by making simple
modifications to an export from a school's student information
system. You can create accounts for up to 2,000 students at a time.
