College Applications are Due!

November 6, 2015
Greetings to you all!
College Applications are due this month!  
November is here and college application deadlines are due at the end of this month.  We are really proud of all the time and effort you are putting into your college applications. Let's keep up the good work!   

Do not wait until the last last couple of days to submit your application.  We strongly recommend that students submit the CSU and UC applications no later than Thursday November 26. We want you to avoid technical difficulties since there will be many students submitting applications closer to the November 30 deadline. Late applications will not be accepted. Make sure yours is in on time!  

MENTEES: In order to help you with your college applications, we will be having a few more workshops at USC. Read bellow for more details. 
  
MENTORS: Thank you for all the time and effort you invest in our students. Also, make sure to read the information below about the CSU's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). It's a great program available at the CSU campuses. It offers additional services to low-income and first-generation students. Please encourage your students to apply when they submit their CSU applications! 
 
Good luck to those of you taking the SAT tomorrow!
 
Sincerely,
 
I AM Staff
