Michigan College Month

Detroit celebrates the college application season by kicking off with #WhyApply in September and hosting Michigan College Month in October. Our goal is to help all graduating high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process and provide the opportunity to complete at least three applications that meet match, reach, and safety qualifications.
