SD College Application Week

October 18th – November 30th

South Dakota College Application Week got its start in 2014 with nine high schools participating and the campaign continues to grow and add new high schools each year. During College Application Week, seniors at participating high schools are eligible for free applications to participating South Dakota postsecondary institutions.

The American College Application Campaign (ACAC) is a national effort to increase the number of first-generation students and students from low-income families pursuing a college degree or other higher education credentials. The primary purpose of this effort is to help high school seniors navigate the complex college admissions process and ensure they apply to at least one postsecondary institution.  

For 2021, the college application week is being extended to almost six weeks as part of a broader College Access Campaign to allow more time for students to take advantage of a free application period. There are also no limits to how many institutions a student may apply to during this time frame, and it is open to everyone.
