The process of applying to postsecondary institutions can be daunting for many high school students. The Maryland College Application Campaign, or MCAC, launches during the week of October 19 through 23 to help students select two- or four-year colleges, private career schools, military programs, or registered apprenticeships that best meet their needs.
The Maryland State Department of Education piloted the campaign last year in partnership with the Maryland Higher Education Commission. State board members visited high schools around the state along with officials from the American Council on Education, which is sponsoring a college application campaign on a national level.
The process is designed to help students and their families navigate the college application process. It is especially helpful if high school seniors are the first members of their families applying to college.
