What is College Knowledge Month (CKM)?

College Knowledge Month is a new initiative that takes place during the month of October. The goal of College Knowledge Month is to provide every graduating high school senior with the preparation, opportunity, and support needed to apply to college.  

The Office of Higher Education has a great website to help students find all the answers needed when applying to colleges.  Follow this link for further information (including scholarships available by MN institutions):

During the week of October 27 - 31 the college application fees will be waived at most Minnesota colleges. The benefit of College Knowledge Month is that some schools are waiving these application fees during the entire month.  Please follow the link below to see which schools are participating during the month of October:
