OHE is excited to announce that it will be launching a mobile web app for high school students in April 2013. The web app, named MN College Planner, will give students the ability to search for colleges, create task lists, look up net pricing and much more. It will also link directly to colleges' websites as well as the highly used CAREERwise Education site where students can learn more about specific careers and majors. The mobile web app has been designed with students in mind, giving them the ability to be in control of their own college planning while also giving OHE a unique new avenue of communication with students. The app will allow students to look up college campus events, plan college visits, upload photos and link to their phone calendars for easy reminders.
OHE considers the app an important step toward helping more Minnesota students prepare for college in a quickly growing technological society. Watch for more information on MN College Planner at www.ohe.state.mn.us.
