Register your site for statewide events and help Oregon Go To College
High schools and community based organizations are invited to host 12th grade college-going events
The Oregon Goes To College initiatives are designed to increase the number of low-income and first-generation Oregonians who enroll in postsecondary education by supporting students in their college search, application, and matriculation process.
Every site is critical to our goal of increasing college access for low-income students around the state. Sign up by June 30th to secure your place as an official host and to be guaranteed free promotional items. Schools and community based organizations are encouraged to register after the priority deadline; they will have access to all planning resources, but we are unable to provide promotional items such as posters and stickers.
