College Application Week

What is College Application Week?

The American College Application Campaign, launched by the American Council on Education (ACE), is a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a postsecondary education. The purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the college admissions process and ensure that each participating student submits at least one admissions application. Special focus is placed on assisting students who would be the first in their families to attend college and students who may not have otherwise seriously considered applying to college.

The Campaign is conducted state by state and is typically held in early November. However, there may be variations of the scheduled week in order to accommodate the individual needs of a state. While activities may vary from state to state, everyone is striving toward the common goal of providing every graduating seniors an opportunity to apply to college. The American College Application Campaign can open the door for students by encouraging them to take a significant step toward college in their senior year.
