Indiana high school students are getting some extra encouragement today to apply for college. As part of National College Application Day, 13 Indiana colleges are waiving their application fees, according to Learn More Indiana. On top of that, more than 50 events are taking place around the state.
Organizers say the goal of College Application Day is to increase the number of low-income and first-generation students who continue their education beyond high school. That includes helping high school seniors through the college admissions process and making sure they apply to at least one college or university.
