Last year, Governor Mark Dayton proclaimed the second week of November Minnesota College Application Week. This week will provide a framework for high schools and postsecondary institutions to collaborate in a concentrated effort to engage and inform underrepresented (first generation college students, students of color, and low-income) students about the college application process and to highlight college and career readiness efforts occurring throughout the state.
