2019 Apply Kansas Report

 

The first step in going to college is to apply!  For many students, applying to college can be a daunting task, but it can be particularly overwhelming for students who may be the first in their family to pursue post-secondary educational dreams or have yet to consider their plans after high school.  Apply Kansas, is our annual statewide campaign in which high schools conduct events to help seniors apply to college with their peers and with help, guidance and a cheering squad from school staff, local community supporters, and post-secondary volunteers.  In partnership with the American College Application Campaign, Apply Kansas is a month-long, state-wide initiative to increase the number of students applying, enrolling and succeeding in college or other post-secondary goals.

We encourage your high school to register.  We’ll help you with resources, tips and tools to help you host a successful event!

When is the campaign?

The 2020 campaign will be held during October.  Your high school can pick a day (or multiple days) during the month to conduct an event. 

How do I register my school?

A registration form will be coming soon.

Should I register if my school is small or if we host a similar event?

YES!  Register your school for Apply Kansas even if you currently conduct a program or your school is small.  (You can even look at our list of participating schools and team up with a participating neighboring school or district.)  Tracking state-wide participation helps evaluate the impact Kansas schools have on their students.

What’s involved in conducting an event?

Your school’s site coordinator will select the date, reserve a computer lab, secure volunteers, and report campaign results.  Apply Kansas & KBOR provides free resources to help with the planning process (see links on the right)  You know what your students will respond to better than anyone, so as long as you can get us your summary data, we’ll support you with resources and anything else you need to have a successful event
