I remember earlier this month, a young lady announced on Twitter that she had been accepted into 50 different schools! Wow!

First off let me point out how she was accepted into my Alama mater Bethune-Cookman University. Lol! She was also accepted into plenty of schools in the state of Alabama. The first thing I thought about was how much she potentially spent on application fees. those things add up! As I posted that on social media, I realized that there are a lot of ways to have college application fees waived.

Right now, the Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE), Alabama Community College System (ACCS), Alabama Possible organization, and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) have their annual Free Alabama College Application Week happening for high school seniors.
