The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance has collaborated with key education partners in the State of Louisiana to develop and implement Louisiana College Application and Access Month for high school seniors in October 2016 as part of the American College Application Campaign.
The American College Application Campaign (ACAC), an effort of the American Council on Education (ACE), is a national initiative to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students to pursue a postsecondary education. The purpose is to help high school seniors navigate the college admissions process and to ensure that each participating student submits at least one admissions application.
In 2013, the Louisiana GEAR UP program, in conjunction with the Lafayette GEAR UP program, launched its Louisiana College Application Week pilot program in 25 high schools. In 2014, more high schools participated in LCAM with a total of 54 high schools hosting college application events. Due to the success of the Louisiana College Application Week pilot, LOSFA expanded this initiative from one week to the entire month of October and is inviting all interested Louisiana high schools to participate.
