*See the list of required application codes and information for each participating college. This information is important because it helps to ensure submitted applications from Alabama students are FREE for Alabama College Application Week

Alabama College Application Week was started nine years ago to increase the overall number of students in our state applying to, and ultimately enrolling in postsecondary education.

The Cash for College FAFSA initiative and Alabama College Application Week were combined into a single campaign (Alabama Possible) to help more K-12 students apply to college early and complete their FAFSA applications.

A key goal is to increase the number of young people, especially first-generation and low-income students, pursuing college degrees.
