The College Fit Project
The College “Fit” Project is a pilot campaign effort to support students/families in learning the valuable insight in determining the school that is the best fit for them. While the college match tool takes into account the academic alignment for match, reach and safety in alignment with African American graduation rates, it does not take into account the social emotional disparagement that students endure while transitioning and embarking on their journeys post graduation.
The campaign will not only educate and elevate these important factors that affect enrollment but will create a space of critical thinking and knowledge application to college research.
The College “Fit” Project will have 3 steps:
What’s Important to Me: You will select your top 10 wants from the list that are most important to you when selecting your college pathway.
College Match Tool: You will use the Detroit College Match website tool to identify a school list based on your academic credentials.
My Top Schools List: You will use the College Match List and identify the top 4 match, reach, and safety schools respectively (12 schools total) that have the support in place for the items identified as “Most Important to Me”. This requires some research into the school. If you are looking for a school with a certain major, you should visit the websites to make sure they have what you are looking for before adding them to your list.
This project begins January 10, 2022 and ends May 1, 2022.
