College Application Week 1 tw.jpg

PELL CITY -- College Application Week (Monday-Friday, Nov. 4-8) is an organized event that allows Alabama high school seniors to apply to colleges for free.

All 270 Pell City High School seniors will be making the most of the opportunity while in their senior government classes. Last year, PCHS had the highest FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) completion rate in Alabama for large high schools. More than 70 colleges, universities and community colleges, both in and out of state, will be waiving their fees for application.

College Application Week is a part of Alabama Possible and the Alabama State Department of Education’s Alabama College Campaign, which encourages students across Alabama to pursue their education after high school.

To apply to participating schools, visit the school’s website and locate its ‘Apply’ page. More information can be found here: (
