College Application Week

October 4 – 15, 2021

During College Application Week all graduating Montana high school seniors have the opportunity to apply for admission to Montana colleges and universities free of charge!

CAW will be hosted in the library. Counselors will be available in the library for assistance during periods 6 and 7 Monday-Friday the week of October 4-8. During the week of October 11-15, students must make an appointment with their school counselor or Ms. Rausch.

New this year:

  1. One common application for MT public schools at applymontana.org. Applications to Montana private schools require an application through their web site. Those applications to Carroll College, University of Providence, and Rocky Mountain College are still FREE!
  2. Application can be submitted to more than one public college!
  3. The application is free! (No deferred cost like in years past.)
  4. Montana’s tribal colleges and private universities will also offer free applications during CAW.

Work on the application at home and get assistance if needed!

College Application Week, CAW, provides high school seniors the opportunity to learn about Montana colleges and universities and complete a college application during the school day, thereby opening the door for many students who might not otherwise take this important step toward college. Last year, more than 7,900 students filled out an application during College Application Week and we anticipate even higher numbers this year! Participating high school seniors not only have an opportunity to apply to a college, but also have the opportunity to utilize the new central application at ApplyMontana.org to apply to any school in the Montana University System for FREE. 


If you’re going out of state for college, you can still utilize CAW to get help with your application. Over 900 schools in the US use the national Common Application system, and over 400 of those schools don’t have application fees.  You can check out the list of those schools, and start on that application process, through this link.
