Wayne State and the Nebraska State College System Sponsor College
WAYNE, Neb. (Aug. 25, 2008) - Wayne State College and fellow Nebraska State College System institutions Chadron State and Peru State want to ensure that Nebraska is doing everything it can to help students earn a college degree. Applying to college is the first step.
To take this first step, the Nebraska State College System will be sponsoring the inaugural NSCS College Application Week, Oct. 27-31. Across the state, the NSCS will help high school seniors apply to at least one of the three state colleges: Chadron, Peru or Wayne State. The application fee will be waived for students applying during this week. Our purpose for establishing NSCS College Application Week is five-fold:
- To expand college access across the state
- To initiate or culminate the college application process for seniors
- To encourage students to complete college applications
- To provide awareness to schools and students about the college application process
- To celebrate the academic achievements and college aspirations of seniors
Our goal during NSCS College Application Week is to provide every graduating high school senior the opportunity to apply to one of our colleges.
We would like to invite all schools to participate in the NSCS College Application Week. All we ask of schools is a commitment of a three-hour block of time during which a representative from one of our colleges can set up a table in your school. During this time, our representative will assist your students in completing a NSCS application.
