Arizona college-going initiatives
The Arizona Board of Regents has three initiatives designed to assist Arizona high schools help seniors apply to college, complete financial aid applications, and celebrate students as they make their final postsecondary education decisions. These campaigns aim to empower and support students in their journey toward higher education and successful career paths.
Arizona College Connect
The state's FAFSA database
Arizona College Connect is an interactive, customized communications portal providing high school leaders with access to students' Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) data and other college attainment information. Completing a FAFSA form is one of the strongest predictors of whether a student will pursue postsecondary education after high school.
Awards and Recognition
To commend and highlight the efforts of high schools involved in Arizona College Application Campaign and the FAFSA Challenge, the Arizona Board of Regents and its FAFSA partners recognize and honor schools that are supporting students on their college-going journey. Through this recognition, the program encourages a healthy spirit of competition among educational institutions, fostering an environment where students receive the necessary support and guidance to confidently pursue their higher education dreams.
