Timeline of events


College Application Week

Help students prepare for their futures by hosting college and financial aid application workshops. Support students with time and space to work on post-high school plans during the school day.

College Application Week is part of the national American College Application Campaign, led by the ACT Center for Equity in Learning.


Set a goal to increase FAFSA/ORSAA completion rates and help students access financial aid.

Hosted by OSAC, in partnership with Oregon Department of Education, ECMC, OASFAA, and Oregon Goes To College.

Spring Into Action

Remind students there is still time to apply for college and financial aid. Encourage them to complete applications for community college admissions, Oregon Promise, and additional financial aid.

Oregon community colleges host application workshops and events.


Decision Day

Celebrate and support students’ plans and their transition after high school.

Decision Day supports Better Make Room's College Signing Day initiative.

Decision Day is one more way to celebrate our students, show them we are proud of their accomplishments, and give underclassmen a preview of what they can achieve. Richard Ceder, Principal, Toledo High School
