Arizona College Application Campaign
The Arizona College Application Campaign (AzCAC) is a statewide effort to increase the number of first-generation college students and students from low-income families pursuing a college degree or other higher education credential. Through this program, high schools are stepping up to advise and guide seniors and their families through their college application journey.
AzCAC is designed to encourage schools to help graduating seniors navigate the admissions process and provide students the opportunity to complete at least one college application during the school year. AzCAC can open the door for students by encouraging them to take significant steps toward college in their senior year and ultimately ensure that every student has a chance to reach their potential and bring Arizona closer to 60% postsecondary attainment by 2030.
If you have questions regarding AzCAC, please reach out to Roxanne Murphy, Director, Postesecondary Attainment at Roxanne.Murphy@azregents.edu.
