Alabama College Application Campaign Week is October 19-23. During this week, many colleges and universities around the state waive their college application fees. Recognizing that 65 percent of jobs require postsecondary education and training, Alabama College Application Week is part of a national effort to increase the number of first-generation college students and students from low-income families pursuing a postsecondary education credential. Obtaining a postsecondary credential correlates with greater lifetime earnings and lower unemployment.
Alabama College Application Week is one of the components of Alabama Goes to College Campaign. This free program is a partnership of Alabama State Department of Education with the Alabama College Attainment Network, and it is available to all Alabama high schools.
