Every high school should have a strategy to ensure all seniors have the opportunity to apply to college. This is particularly true this year when students may find themselves bouncing between limited in-person and remote access to school counselors and teachers.

Join this webinar series to learn how to implement leading strategies, tactics, tools, and resources to support efforts to ensure every senior applies to at least one college.

How to Host a College Application Event
Tuesday, August 11, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT | 60 minutes
The college application process can be confusing and stressful, particularly for students from low-income families and those who would be the first in their family to attend college. By joining the American College Application Campaign, high schools can take steps to ensure every senior gets the opportunity to apply to college. This webinar will introduce the campaign, discuss what it means to be a host site, and provide guidance on how to host a college application event this year with COVID-19 limitations, if necessary.

Join ACAC staff and educators from across the country to:
  • learn about the American College Application Campaign,
  • what it means to be a host site,
  • how to adjust for possible in-person limitations due to COVID-19, and
  • why you should consider hosting a campaign event.
