StepUp to Higher Education, an outreach initiative of the Utah System of Higher Education, recently completed the 2016 College Guide. This guide—the fifth StepUp has done—will be distributed to Utah high school students through the High School Tour, where representatives from all nonprofit colleges and universities in Utah go to Utah high schools to educate these students about the various opportunities for college in the state. The High School Tour is coordinated by the Utah Council.
The College Guide is also distributed through various outreach events, college access programs like GEARUP, AVID, TRiO, Latinos in Action, Utah Scholars, and many more. The College Guide will also be available online at StepUpUtah.com for school educators and counselors to order. This year, it is anticipated that 42,300 College Guides will be distributed to Utah students through the High School Tour, and 42,700 will be distributed through other outreach programs and online orders.
The College Guide is funded by the College Access Challenge Grant.
