Admissions Counselor Institute

MACAC's Admission Counselor Institute (ACI) is a great opportunity for college admission counselors with one or less years of experience who are seeking basic information about college counseling. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend sessions that are relevant to their role in 2 or 4 year schools, and their role in higher education. Here is a sample of last year’s topics: Financial Aid, Utilizing Campus Resources for recruitment, Transfer 101, Communicating with high school aged students, Advancing as a professional, working with diverse student populations, uncomfortable conversation, and more. Highlights included the welcome from the MACAC President, professional networking BBQ, break-out sessions, and many group activities.
