Indiana Participates in National College Application Week, Sept. 20-24
High school seniors can apply to some Hoosier colleges for free

(INDIANAPOLIS) – Fourteen Indiana colleges will waive college application fees during Indiana’s College Application Week, September 20-24, according to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. Another 25 colleges have reported free applications year-round.

College Application Week is part of Learn More Indiana’s annual College GO! initiative that takes place each August through November with information and resources designed to help Hoosier K-12 students explore and plan for education beyond high school. The official College GO! kick-off week is the last full week in September (Sept. 20-24). The Friday prior, Sept. 17, is #WhyApply Day which is a social media campaign encouraging the public to share why it’s important to apply to college.

“College GO! gives students of all ages the opportunity to understand the value of higher education and explore which path is right for them after high school,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “We hope Hoosier high school seniors will take advantage of College Application week and apply for free to their preferred Indiana colleges.”

Indiana high school seniors can apply to the following Hoosier colleges for free between September 20 and 24:
