MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Next week, high school students will have the opportunity to participate in the Spring 2023 College Application Campaign from Feb. 20-24, 2023, at no cost.

This is an extension of the event held in October 2022 for thousands of high school seniors. The Alabama Department of Education stated that the key goal of this campaign is to increase the number of young people, especially first-generation and low-income students, pursuing college degrees.

“During our college application campaign held in October, we had over 26,000 seniors across the state apply to colleges and universities. Due to the success of this campaign, colleges and universities have agreed to host another event for students,” said Alabama College Application Campaign (ALCAC) Coordinator Dr. Monica P. Mack. “Students that did not apply to a college or university during the initial campaign are encouraged to participate in this event.”

The following colleges and universities have officially waived their application fees this week to allow Alabama students participating in ALCAC, Spring 2023, to submit their applications to their institutions at no cost:
