October is College Knowledge Month! Many institutions waive the college application fees during College Knowledge Month. A good resource for families: Minnesota Goes to College.

Minnesota State Week is June 21-24, 2022. The colleges and universities of Minnesota State will waive application fees during “Minnesota State Week,” set for June 21 - 24, 2022. It’s a great time for students who haven’t decided what they will do after graduation this spring to explore one or more of the 54 campuses that are part of Minnesota State.
