By Joshua Huff, sports editor

Starting on Monday, Nov. 4, 2019, high school students across Alabama will be able to apply to multiple colleges across the state for free in a program run by the state department of education. The event ends Nov. 8.

The initiative is deemed College Application Week. Throughout the week, colleges across Alabama will waive their application fees to encourage prospective students to apply. 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.

Typically, the cost of a college application averages $43, according to a study by US News. On average, more than eight in 10 students apply to at least three colleges.
