12th Year Campaign Registration Form - 2020-2021

Welcome to the 12th Year Campaign!
Together, we can provide every high school senior with the opportunity to apply for postsecondary education and complete their financial aid application. The 12th Year Campaign boosts college and financial aid application rates in Washington by helping those working with high school seniors and their families complete applications for college admissions and financial aid. This campaign includes the American College Application Campaign and College Goal Washington. 12th Year Campaign sites receive free training, printed materials, and other resources to support their students.  We look forward to partnering with you!
