October 18-22 is Alabama College Application Week and more than 60 colleges and universities across the state will be waiving their application fees in recognition.

Several universities in other states are participating as well.

According to the Alabama Department of Education, Alabama College Application Week was started nine years with the goal of increasing Alabama’s college application and enrollment numbers. The event is especially aimed at encouraging first-generation and low-income students to apply to college.

“During this event, local high schools will be hosting special college application celebrations
with students submitting applications to colleges nationwide,” said Alabama College
Application Campaign (ALCAC) Coordinator, Dr. Monica P. Mack. “Last year, more than 200
Alabama schools participated and nearly 28,000 students applied to colleges nationwide.”
