College Application Week

College Application Week

Help students prepare for their futures by hosting a College Application Week event!

College Application Week (CAW) is most successful with a committed coordinator (or two!) at each site. We recommend that coordinators work with a dedicated team of colleagues, volunteers, and students to develop a CAW event that is unique to the needs and interests of your community. As with most things, a successful CAW event is about being prepared. The coordinator resources are designed to help you and your students be as prepared as possible for your event.

College Application Week is part of the national American College Application Campaign, led by the ACT Center for Equity in Learning.
