UCSF's annual MAP TO COLLEGE!

MAP to College! is a free, one-day, annual college-going event held in the fall for Bay Area students in the 12th grade and their parents or guardians. The event will be held on Saturday, September 27; register online now.

Fall semester of a student’s senior year in high school is a critical time for college applications. As colleges become more competitive and selective, it is important that students understand the nuances of each college application and how to write a strong personal essay.

Attendees of MAP to College! can attend workshops on the UC application and personal statement, the CSU application, the Community College transfer path, the application and admissions process for private colleges and financial aid.

Financial aid workshops are presented in English, Spanish and Cantonese.

This event is targeted to students in the twelfth grade, but students of all grades are welcome to attend!
