College Application Month 2021 has concluded and we are so thankful for the 145 high schools that held events at their school. We would also like to extend a big thank you to college admissions volunteers who volunteered their time to ensure that students got application help during these events. We couldn’t do it without you!
About College Application Month
College Application Month is part of a national initiative known as the American College Application Campaign. The American Council on Education started this program in 2005 with a single high school in North Carolina. Today, it reaches more than 250,000 schools in all 50 states.
The goal of College Application Month is to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential. Nationally, this effort has been extremely effective in meeting these needs with schools indicating that up to 77 percent of the applicants on these days were in that demographic.
