Course helps Indian students get into college

A five-day course called College Horizons is helping Indian high school students get into college and, hopefully, stay there.

Held around the country, the course seeks to demystify the college admissions process. Officials from top universities talk to students about financial aid, college life and other subjects.

According to the American Indian Graduate Center of Albuquerque, New Mexico, fewer than one in five Indians who enroll in college earn a bachelor's degree.
