For many high school seniors across Georgia, the application and financial aid process can be overwhelming and deterring. Georgia Apply to College Month, held during November, is full of events specifically designed to to assist high school seniors with the college application process and to make them aware of the many college-related resources that are available. Via students have a one-stop-shop to apply to colleges throughout the state of Georgia.

Georgia Apply to College Month events have been underway at nearly 200 participating Georgia high schools across the state. Open to all seniors at those schools, the program has a special focus on providing assistance students who are the first from their family to attend college as well as those that find the application process confusing.

“As an increased focus has been placed on college completion, it is also important for us to give students all the necessary tools to succeed. That starts with the college application and financial aid process,” University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby said. “Apply to College Month is an excellent opportunity for high school seniors to receive one-on-one attention to educate them about the materials available to help them successfully transfer from high school to the post secondary option of his or her choice.”
