October is ‘College Month’ at M-DCPS

The Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) College Assistance Program (CAP) is offering virtual college fairs and college preparation workshops for parents and students. These new planning tools were created to assist families with college planning, applying for financial aid or scholarships, registering for college fairs, and are designed to equip them with information needed to make the right choice about college. 

This month, several states are participating in free College Application Month events where students and families can get help with the application process. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available and many states are holding free financial aid workshops.

M-DCPS’ virtual resources increase accessibility and equity for all students, and the webinars help students and parents who may not have face-to-face access with their school’s CAP advisor. These workshops are a beneficial resource in addition to the annual National College Fair held in February for all students.
