Alpena, Mich. — AdviseMI announced the 72 schools where they plan to have recent college advisers for the 2019-2020 school year.

The AdviseMI program helps current high school students navigate through the college process by placing recent college graduates in those high schools. These graduates answer questions and guide students through the process.

Advisers will help with exploring different colleges, taking or retaking college admission tests, applying to colleges that fit, completing a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), securing financial aid, and enrolling.

Alpena High School and ACES Academy were the only schools selected in northeast Michigan for the program. Advisers are recent graduates from 20 different partner colleges throughout Michigan. They go through extensive training to address student’s needs in pursuing the next steps. The AdviseMI program is offered through the Michigan College Access Program.
