College Countdown MS: June 2017 Workshops

College Countdown MS is the Mississippi partner of The American College Application Campaign (ACAC). The mission is to help Mississippi high school seniors gain access to college through assistance with completing college applications, submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the state grant application, and celebrating their acceptance to college.

The Mississippi Department of Education, the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning, the Mississippi Community College Board, and Get2College will host three separate workshops for College and Career Readiness in June. High Schools are strongly encouraged to enroll at least one high school administrator and at least one counselor for their area workshop.

During the workshops Administrators and Counselors will:

  1. Understand how College Countdown can help with graduation rates and dropout restructuring plans.
  2. Understand the role of counselors with College and Career Readiness.
  3. Learn how to foster and grow relationships with postsecondary partners.

Registration information is located below.  The registration deadline is Friday, May 26.  CEU and SEMI credit will be available for participants.

If you have any questions, please contact Heather Morrison, P20 Project Coordinator, Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning at hmorrison@mississipp.edu.
