Who We Are

The Southern Association for College Admission Counseling is dedicated to supporting counseling and enrollment professionals as they help students transition from high school to higher education.

SACAC includes counselors, college admission officers, and independent counselors from high schools, colleges, and organizations in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and the Caribbean. Our 1,700 members promote high professional standards by exchanging ideas, sharing goals, preparing counselors to serve students, and adhering to a set of ethical guidelines and practices.

We are an affiliate of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), which represents over 10,000 members worldwide.

SACAC is a dynamic and growing association of roughly 1500 college admission professionals in the nine states of the Southeast and the Caribbean. Memberships run September 1 to August 31 and cost $45 per year for each member at an institution or organization.
