ACAC Events

December 30, 1899


American College Application Campaign®

November 2015 is American College Application Campaign month. However, program implementation dates vary by state in order to meet the needs of the state. When available, and as provided by the state, the dates for each state's ACAC program are included on their state profile page. State profile pages can be viewed on the ACAC Main Page by clicking on the state.

National Convening

Each year, the American College Application Campaign team coordinates a national convening. The goals of the national convening are to:

  • Provide a collaborative, discussion-driven opportunity for ACAC state coordinators to share and learn effective practices and strategies for implementing a College Application Campaign program.
  • Educate states on the resources, training, and guidance ACAC can provide as each state implements the initiative.

The 2015 national ACAC Convening was hosted virtually on July 29-30 through the generous support of America Achieves. ACAC representatives from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were invited to attend the convening. If you have questions about the national ACAC Convening, please contact ACAC at

Trainings and Webinars

The ACAC team is available to provide technical assistance to your state as you convene your state’s College Application event steering committee, train your high school site coordinators, and work through the various logistics necessary to implement a successful program. These can be done in-person, through webinars, and/or during a conference call. Please contact the ACAC team at for any assistance your state may need.


In order to inform opinion leaders and college access practitioners, the ACAC team presents regularly at national, regional, and state conferences. If you are hosting a conference and would like to include a plenary or breakout session on the Campaign, contact us at The following meetings have included or will include sessions focused on the Campaign:
