More sites! More students! More applications!

College Application Week continues to grow and in its fourth year saw its biggest participation yet with more sites across the state hosting dedicated events to support seniors in applying to postsecondary education throughout the month of November. But don't take our word for it - see the data and what educators and students have to say.

"College Application Week made it really easy to apply." Student, Philomath High School, Philomath

"Overall, it is a great opportunity to get seniors started on the process and familiarize them with college applications.  It's always amazing how many of our students come to us not knowing anything, and leave feeling so much more prepared and knowing what their next steps are, as well as where to come with all their questions!" Site Coordinator

"This honestly really helped get the ball going. With this time taken to apply for colleges I learned that there are people who have done this before and can help me and my fellow students with this kinda scary process. So thanks!" Student, Ridgeview High School, Redmond

"Many students express such relief and pleasure for actively accomplishing some applications during the event. Sometimes the hardest part of applying to college is sitting down and getting started, and once this initial step is begun, students experience such a thrill." Site Coordinator

"I would just like to say that I love College Application Week. I believe it's a great thing to motivate students to at least fill out an application." Student, Jefferson High School, Jefferson
