October 12, 2023 – Collinsville High School hosted nine regional universities for the school’s annual On-site College Admission Day on Friday, October 6, 2023. At the end of the day, 167 Kahoks walked away with college acceptances to those universities.
Universities participating in the 2023 event at CHS were: McKendree University, SIUC, SIUE, Eastern Illinois University, Western Illinois University, University of Missouri St. Louis, Missouri State University, SEMO and Murray State University.
Participating universities have the opportunity to meet CHS students and review their college applications during the event. Application fees are waived for participating students. This year, as a group, students saved a more than $30,000 in application fees. Students also learned about potential scholarships and other financial aid available to them through their chosen school(s).
On-site College Admission Day is a project of the CHS Counseling Department to assist students with the college application and acceptance process. The event is coordinated by CHS Counselor Jason Corey.
The university representatives at the event were impressed with the CHS students, and complimentary of the overall organization of the event. They look forward to recruiting more Kahoks next year!
