ST. PAUL - TrekNorth Junior and Senior High School and Red Lake High School are among 129 schools that will receive assistance through the state's Direct Admissions program, which was launched last year to ensure graduating high school students know they qualify for admission to various Minnesota colleges and universities.

According to a release, participating colleges proactively notify high school seniors that they have been guaranteed admission based on their academic records and waive the application fee.

"Higher education is one of the greatest tickets towards economic growth and opportunity, but as a former teacher, I know the college admissions process can be a daunting process for students," Gov. Tim Walz said in a release. "By making sure students know all of their options and waiving the cost to apply to schools, we are removing barriers and making higher education accessible for more students than ever across the state."
