Presentation Archives

The Presentation Archive houses Annual Conference, SLC, and IDEA presentations and handouts (when available) in order to preserve and share best practices with WACAC members. Presentations and handouts during a particular academic year will be catalogued under that event tab for nine months, at which point will be transferred to the thematically organized Presentation Archive page. Categories include:

1. Admissions & Financial Aid
2. Applications
3. Colleges & Universities
4. Counseling Program Management
5. Majors
6. Student Populations

Please note that the college admission process is constantly evolving; you should always verify specific data and policy information contained in archived files. WACAC is not responsible for validating presentation file data.
