- Counties are organized into 12 regions (see picture below).

- Each region is assigned a week to where dates can be picked to host a College Application Month event during (see chart below).

- If you would like to host your College Application Month event during a half day, whole day, two days, entire week or entire month that is completely up to you. You will be able to click on these dates during that assigned week to notify us your date(s) and specific time(s).

- If you see that the assigned week your county falls in does not align with your school schedule and/or activities, you will have the choice to choose another "preferred" date outside the assigned week but between September-November.

- Please remember to be very specific on the times your event will be held. If it is a half day, please give that time frame. If you are holding appointments, please list the appointment times. This will help volunteers and college representatives organize their schedules so they can maximize the time allowed to assist students with their college applications that day/week.

This assigned week scheduling will allow for more organization of events throughout the state so volunteers, college representatives, the media, and business leaders will have the ability and flexibility to organize their schedules so they can maximize their time to assist students with their college applications that day/week in their regions.

Also, these assigned weeks will not occur at the same time as Ed Op weeks.

Please do not hesitate to contact me (Catherine Sturm) at and I will gladly work with you on registering your event.

College Application Month Materials (additional new information)

If you hosted a College Application Month event last year - you were provided with additional hard copies of the materials for this year.

If you are a new school hosting for the very first time or need extra materials - all of College Application Month materials can be found on SCCANGO by clicking here. These materials are print-friendly, you can email them to parents and students and post to social media. Remember the flyers are created for you to enter your event information and print them out and post around your school to promote your event.

I will be refreshing the College Application Month training power point and will send to you in the next couple of days. Please go through this power point with your College Application Month planning committee. Also, a power point will be send to each of you to use to open up your program each session so students are all receiving the same information during College Application Month.

If you have any questions regarding these materials, please email me at
