Utah College Application Week

Resources for counselors and advisors

The goal of UCAW is to provide every high school senior at our partner schools the opportunity to complete at least one college or university application during the school day, with a particular focus on students who would be the first in their families to attend college, low-income students, or students who may not have otherwise considered applying.

UCAW happens every October in high schools around the state.

Governor Gary R. Herbert declares October 2020 as Utah College Application and Awareness Month.

About the national campaign

The American College Application Campaign (ACAC) and the ACT center for equity and learning is a national initiative to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a post-secondary education. The purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the college admissions process and ensure each participating student submits at least one admissions application

The ACAC initiative began in 2005, in a single GEAR UP North Carolina high school in Chatham County. Since 2008, the number of states implementing a College Application program has been growing. In 2013 Utah joined ACAC as the 39th state. In 2014 all states jointed this national campaign.
