ACAC Events

December 30, 1899

 

American College Application Campaign®

This year, the American College Application Campaign kicked off the national efforts with a #WhyApply Day on Friday, September 21, 2018. We encourage everyone to share on social media why it's important to apply to college. Though most states host events in October and November, 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 2018 National ACAC Convening took place at ACE in Washington, DC on July 19-20 through the generous support of ACT and Hearst Foundations. ACAC representatives from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were invited to attend the convening and along with a number of our national partners. If you have questions about the national ACAC Convening, please contact ACAC at acac@acenet.edu.

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 acac@acenet.edu for any assistance your state may need.
