DCB is an Option for BND Free College Application Month


Dakota College at Bottineau is excited to be part of Bank of North Dakota’s College Application Month (CAM). CAM is part of a national initiative known as the American College Application Campaign. The American Council on Education started this program in 2005 with a single high school in North Carolina. Today, it reaches more than 250,000 schools in all 50 states.
The goal of CAM is to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential. Nationally, this effort has been extremely effective in meeting these needs with schools indicating that up to 77% of the applicants on these days were in that demographic.
In addition to applying for college, CAM also helps students and their parents learn about the FAFSA and begin that process. When seniors apply to a North Dakota college during their school’s event, Bank of North Dakota pays one $35 application fee per student. October is a perfect time of the year to conduct these events. Dakota College Admission Counselors will be available in person at these participating high schools:

  • October 6 Career Presentation, Souris River High school
  • October 6 Velva High School
  • October 11 Westhope High School
  • October 13 Harvey High School
  • October 14 Drake-Anamoose High School
  • October 18 Rugby High School
  • October 27 Dunseith High School
