UCAW 2018 November 5-9, 2018

Brighton High School will participate in Utah College Application Week, sponsored by the Utah System of Higher Education, on November 5-9, 2018. As part of Utah’s college access initiative, Brighton High School will work with its seniors to complete and submit at least one college application.

Students should come to school that week knowing where they want to apply and be prepared to fill out a college application by bringing the completed worksheet that was mailed home. They should also be prepared to pay the application fee. For fee waiver information, click HERE.


Students will be applying during their Government class on Tuesday or Wednesday, Nov. 6th or 7th. If your student doesn’t have Government during 1st Trimester, the counselors will call them to the computer lab on Thursday, Nov. 8th.


Utah College Application Week (UCAW) gives every high school senior in participating schools the opportunity to apply to a college or university during the school day early in their senior year. UCAW is coordinated by the Utah System of Higher Education and is part of the American College Application Campaign (ACAC).  ACAC is a national initiative of the American Council on Education (ACE) and focuses on first-generation and low income students who are less likely to apply to and enroll in college. 


Utah joined the ACE in 2013. In 2015, all US states and the District of Columbia had a College Application Campaign.
