KACRAO is a nonprofit, voluntary, professional association of more than 400 higher education administrators who represent nearly 80 institutions and agencies in the State of Kansas.

This website serves as the official communication tool for the Association. The KACRAO website contains many resources for its members. The Member Services section is a password-protected KACRAO members only section that includes the KACRAO membership directories, high school directories, and College Planning Conferences schedules as well as other resources.

Apply Kansas

The first step in going to college is to apply! For most students, applying to college can be a daunting task, but it can be particularly overwhelming for students who may be the first in their family to pursue postsecondary educational dreams or have yet to consider their plans after high school. Apply Kansas gives seniors time and space to work on their post high school plans during the school day early in their senior year among their peers and with help, guidance, and a cheering squad from school staff, local community supporters, and post-secondary educational staff members.

Become a Site Coordinator! If you are interested in facilitating an Apply Kansas event for your school in October 2019, fill out the registration formhere. We will provide training, resources and tips along the way to help you host a successful event!
