September 20, 2021 - Oklahoma’s College App Week Set for Sept. 20-24

Media Contact

High school seniors across the state have the unique opportunity to submit college admission applications with support from knowledgeable volunteers during Oklahoma College Application Week, Sept. 20-24.

Oklahoma’s College App Week is affiliated with the National College Application Campaign, through which college access organizations across America host college application events in all 50 states.

The primary goal of College App Week is to encourage more high school seniors, especially those who haven’t considered attending college and those from first generation college-going families, to apply and establish relationships with colleges and universities that will hopefully lead to enrollment. During College App Week, schools select a convenient time for seniors to sit down in front of a computer and apply to the college(s) of their choice. Volunteers from the community, local businesses, colleges and universities, and other supportive organizations are available to assist students with any questions during the process.

“Oklahoma’s participation in College App Week began in 2012 with 24 school districts,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson. “Last year, 90 high schools, libraries, community colleges and technology centers hosted College App Week events despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participating sites provide hands-on support for high school seniors as they complete college applications, prepare for the next steps in the enrollment process, and apply for financial aid.”

Prior to College App Week, high school seniors and their families receive materials that help them research college options and prepare for application questions. In support of local events, schools often encourage students in all grade levels to think about education after high school through special events and activities.

Over the last 10 years, more than 285 schools, higher education campuses, and community organizations and more than 37,000 high school seniors have participated in Oklahoma’s College App Week. Along with the State Regents, College App Week is supported by Oklahoma GEAR UP, the Oklahoma College Access Network (OK-CAN), the Oklahoma College Assistance Program, the Oklahoma State Chamber, the Oklahoma State Department of Education and nationally by Lumina Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the American Council on Education.
