Michigan's Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs

King Chavez Parks College Day Program

The King Chavez Parks College Day Program was created by the Michigan State Legislature in 1986 as part of the larger KCP Initiative. The legislative intent is to stem the downward spiral of college graduation rates for students underrepresented in post-secondary education.

Michigan's KCP College Day (CD) program targets low-income students in the  state and provides them with support services to increase opportunities to succeed during higher education at Michigan's post-secondary institutions.

The College Day Program mission is to provide an opportunity for students to discover, first hand, the potential of a college education and to expose students to the information, knowledge, and skills they need to prepare themselves adequately for college entry and success.
