About KCAC

For many students, particularly those who do not have an immediate family member who attended college, applying to college can seem overwhelming. For those students, not having someone who can help them navigate the college application process can be enough to prevent them from pursuing a postsecondary education. By implementing a College Application Month program, we can ensure that all seniors have the opportunity to receive hands–on assistance as they take the first big step towards continuing their education following high school.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) is pleased to sponsor Kentucky College Application Month. KHEAA and the following partners will provide support through resource materials and field staff counselors. Planning, scheduling and implementation of any or all of the suggestions in this Guide are the responsibility of the host school. Kentucky College Application Month partners represent:
