(UNDATED) - Hoosier high school students around the state will be participating in College Application Day on October 21. Seven Indiana colleges will waive college applications today and seven are waiving application fees for the month of October.

College Application day is sponsored in partnership with Learn More Indiana and the national American College Application Campaign to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students pursuing education beyond high school.

"The value of higher education has never been greater," Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers said. "College Application Day encourages students to take a critical early step toward improving their futures by applying to college."

Schools have the flexibility to designate any day that is deemed the most appropriate for their schedules as College Application Day. 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. The effort occurs during the school day, with a focus on students who might not otherwise apply to college.

Colleges Waiving Application Fees for College Application Day:

  • Goshen College
  • Indiana State University
  • Indiana University East
  • Indiana University Kokomo
  • Indiana University Southeast
  • Indiana University South Bend
  • Vincennes University

Colleges Waiving Application Fees for the Month of October

  • Grace College
  • Ivy Tech Community College
  • Marian University
  • Purdue University Northwest
  • Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • Saint Joseph's College
  • Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College

All 50 states are engaged in the College Application Day initiative, with the national headquarters providing the technical assistance, training, webinars and evaluation support.

College Application Day is an important part of Indiana's College Go! campaign, an annual effort to help more Hoosier students take steps to explore and prepare for college. Learn more at
