Admission Counselor Institute

MACAC's Admission Counselor Institute (ACI) is a professional development opportunity that hosts eager professionals from two and four-year colleges from every corner of Minnesota. This two-day in-person conference is geared to new admissions professionals with one to two years of experience. You will engage and cover topics on financial aid, communicating with high school counselors, uncomfortable conversations, and more. In addition to the in-depth session topics, you can network with other newer professionals working in higher education.

The Professional Development committee recognizes the intense training their home institutions offer, so this is a supplement to that training, touching on and reinforcing your training and providing you with tools and resources to ensure a successful first or second year of recruitment.
