CIC Resources to Help with HB17-1041 Implementation

In August 2017, a law went into effect regarding educational opportunities that lead to jobs. College In Colorado offers many resources that you may use with students and add to their ICAP that will help you meet these requirements.

Exciting Scholarship Enhancements

At the end of June a major overhaul of our scholarship tools launched. Among many new features, just in time for fall students can sign up for monthly e-mails that give them a real-time update of new scholarships that match their profile!

2017-2018 Workshop Topics and Schedule

Try the Middle School Activities

Students may log into their portfolio to check out activities designed specifically for middle schoolers. Explore Directions After High School and the Career Clusters Map. These activities help students learn about options after high school graduation, to map out possiblities for career areas and rank the ones they like best! May be added to ICAP pages.

Updated Milestone Tracking

The milestone tracking capability and reporting now includes the ability to define a set of milestones at the school level or by individual milestones to monitor student work. There are multiple filtering options at both the school and district reporting levels. Review how you can generate in-depth analyses through the updated milestone features.

Batch Account Creation Enhanced!

The School Finance Act of 2009 specified that each 6th grade student have a CollegeInColorado.org account. With recent enhancements to the process, it is now easier than ever to mass-create College In Colorado student accounts and greatly reduce any additional burden these requirements may impose.

Creation of multiple accounts is done by making simple modifications to an export from a school's student information system. You can now create accounts for up to 2,000 students at a time. If this feature is unfamiliar to you, contact your College In Colorado  outreach and access coordinator for further information and assistance.
