OKC, Ok September, 21 ( The Oklahoma Post) –

The Oklahoma State Regents For Higher Education announced today their plans for Oklahoma College Applications Week. A great program that assists Seniors from across the state prepare college applications. See the entirety of the release below.


SEPTEMBER 21, 2022 – OKLAHOMA’S COLLEGE APP WEEK SET FOR SEPT. 26-30

High school seniors across the state can get help from knowledgeable volunteers to submit college admission applications during Oklahoma College Application Week, Sept. 26-30. 

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. 

“College App Week in Oklahoma began in 2012 with 24 school districts,” said Chancellor Allison D. Garrett. “Last year, 117 high schools, colleges and universities, libraries, career technology centers, and tribal organizations across the state hosted College App Week events, providing hands-on support for high school seniors as they completed college applications, prepared for the next steps in the enrollment process, and applied 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.
