INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - High school seniors are set to participate in College Application Day.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education says the event Tuesday tries to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other post-secondary credentials.

Higher Education Commissioner Teresa Lubbers says College Application Day highlights to students the importance of taking that first step of applying to college.

Schools have the flexibility to designate any day they deem the most appropriate for their schedules as College Application Day. The primary purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process and ensure they apply to at least one postsecondary institution. The effort occurs during the school day, with a focus on students who might not otherwise apply to college.
