Indiana University is partnering with the College Advising Corps (CAC) and AmeriCorps to promote higher education opportunities to Indiana high school students. Indiana University Bloomington and CAC are devoted to helping every student take advantage of the opportunities that college offers. CAC focuses on college enrollment and completion among low-income, first-generation college and underrepresented high school students by delivering personalized, knowledgeable guidance on college admission, financial aid, and enrollment. This partnership supports the campus strategic plan to recruit and retain a highly motivated, diverse, academically prepared and global complement of undergraduate and graduate students.
Indiana University College Advising Corps (IUBCAC) Advisers work in an assigned Indiana high school alongside high school staff to mentor, encourage, and assist students with their college search, admissions, scholarship, and financial aid applications, and the transition from high school to higher education.
