Ready, Set, Apply!

Throughout September-October, Richland Two high schools will host College Application Day events to assist students with the college application process. The goal of College Application Month is to provide a forum for all South Carolina seniors to complete and file college applications.

Parents make sure your students know the dates of events at their schools:

Richland Northeast - Sept. 29
Blythewood - Oct. 1
Spring Valley - Oct. 1
Ridge View - Oct. 5
Westwood - Oct. 6

The College Application Month Initiative comes at a critical time in our state’s history. Overwhelming evidence reveals that higher levels of education lead to greater prosperity and competitiveness in the knowledge economy. However, South Carolina is well short of the national average and behind the national leaders in the proportion of adults who hold graduate/professional and baccalaureate degrees. College Application Month is designed to expand statewide college access and awareness.
