Is your school one of our trailblazing partners in CAM? We've asked three schools, one in each region of the state, to commit to 100% participation by their senior class in completing the FAFSA and at lease one postsecondary application. Applications may be to a two-year, four-year, military or occupations/technical institution - and, College In Colorado is there to support each school each step of the way.
