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.

We have the tools 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.

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.

Milestone Tracking

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 impose.

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. If this feature is unfamiliar to you, contact technical support at 1 (800) 281-1168 for further information and assistance.

Telephone Support

Do you have students or parents that could use help on the phone on CollegeInColorado.org, financial aid or other questions? We have a dedicated phone line for assistance in English or Spanish; dial (720) 264-8580.
