  • Utah College Application Week Event

    November 12, 2014

    Kearns High School

    9:00 – 10:30am

    Utah College Application Week (UCAW) events will take place November 10 – 21, 2014, in 15 districts and 49 schools across the state. Higher education leaders, partnering with K-12, will work with over 20,000 Utah high school seniors as these students apply to college during the school day. UCAW has a particular focus on first-generation and low income students, who are less likely to enroll in college.

    Last school year, UCAW started as a pilot program in eight schools and three districts, and had over 2,300 students participating. Of these students, 55 percent identified as the first in their family to apply for college and, after participating in UCAW, 87 percent reported an increased interest in going to college. The Utah System of Higher Education plans to continue expanding UCAW over the next several years.
