High-schoolers in Alabama getting ready for higher education this fall can apply to many state schools for free next week as part of the state’s College Application Campaign.

“During our recent college application campaign held in October, we had over 25,000 seniors across the state apply to colleges and universities. Due to the success of this campaign, colleges and universities throughout the country have agreed to host another event for students,” said Alabama College Application Campaign Coordinator Monica P. Mack in a statement. “Students that did not apply to a college or university during the initial campaign are encouraged to participate in this event.”
