College Access Advising Program Results

In 2013, our team of two College Access Advisors provided college preparation services to more than 3,000 students and families at 173 high schools across the state.

We mailed materials to each high school in South Dakota to assist counselors with their efforts to encourage students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Included in this mailing were:

  • the popular "U HAFTA FAFSA" branded posters, bookmarks, and flyers
  • a paper order form to allow the counselor to order additional free FAFSA materials
  • a promotional flyer for our spring series of webinar presentations
