American College Application Campaign

The American College Application Campaign® (ACAC), a national initiative administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council, is designed to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a postsecondary education. The purpose is to assist high school seniors as they navigate the college admissions process and ensure each participating student submits at least one admissions application.

This initiative seeks to address income inequality, a critical need for the state. Increasing the number of low-income students who apply and then earn a college credential can reverse the cycle of poverty, reduce the strain on social services, and advance opportunities for economic prosperity in Washington.
