MSC Southeast will waive application fee for entire month of October and celebrate Minnesota State Week October 12-16
Winona and Red Wing, MN (September 29, 2020) -- This October, students can apply for admission to Minnesota State College Southeast without paying the $20 application fee. The offer is part of College Knowledge Month and Minnesota State Week -- promotions that are intended to encourage students to take the first steps in their higher education journey.
The goal of "Minnesota State Week" is to drive student awareness and virtual and in-person campus visits. Fall Minnesota State Week will be held October 12 - 16 to coincide with MEA week and the many admissions events happening at Minnesota State colleges and universities in mid-October.
"College Knowledge Month" is a statewide college application initiative that occurs every fall throughout the month of October. The goal is to provide graduating high school seniors, especially underrepresented students, with the support needed to apply for college.
"This is an opportunity to learn more about what we have to offer at Minnesota State College Southeast," said MSC Southeast Director of Admissions and Enrollment Tammy Vondrasek. "Our admissions representatives are welcoming students to campus for private tours by appointment and we are holding virtual open houses on Zoom throughout the month."
In addition, the college has developed a new video campus tour, which is available online at www.southeastmn.edu/videotour.
"The $20 application fee is always waived when students apply during a Virtual Admissions Open House or when visiting campus. We want to reward you for considering Minnesota State College Southeast as the next step in achieving your higher education goals," said Tammy Vondrasek. "If you are thinking about starting college in 2021, October is the best time to apply!"
