HOW DID #WHYAPPLY & CAM START?
The American College Application Campaign, launched by the American Council on Education (ACE), is a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a postsecondary education.
The purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the college admissions process and ensure each participating student submits at least one admissions application. Special focus is placed on assisting students who would be the first in their families to attend college and students who may not have considered applying to college.
WHEN DOES CAM TAKE PLACE?
The campaign is held in October organized by the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN).
WHEN DOES #WHYAPPLY TAKE PLACE?
This year, the American College Application Campaign will kick off the national efforts with a #WhyApply Day on Friday, September 21, 2018.

COLLEGE APPLICATION MONTH
In Detroit, we celebrate college application season by celebrating #WhyApply Day on Friday, September 21st and hosting Michigan College Application Month during the month of October. #WhyApply Day is the annual kick-off celebration of the college application season, and the purpose of College Application Month is to support students with applying to college.
Our goal is to help all graduating high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process and provide the opportunity to complete at least one application by the conclusion of College Application Month at host high schools.
