Visit the Hill is coming up quickly and we hope that you can join us on Thursday, February 22! Educational sessions will include FAFSA and paying for college, AEAs and resources that are provided, college and career readiness, and advocacy.  All of the sessions should assist in helping students and secondary/post-secondary professionals advocate effectively during the post-lunch trip to the Iowa Capitol. Lunch is provided for this event to all attendees.  

We encourage admissions professionals, professional school counselors, and students to take part in this annual event. We also know that the weather in Iowa, especially in February, can be a little fickle, but looking ahead, it looks like it should be a great day! In an effort to help with the costs, please considering applying for the travel scholarship. You can register and find more details at

See you in Des Moines!
