The goal of the College Application Completion Initiative is to help all graduating seniors navigate through the college admissions process and ensures that each student submits at least one admissions application.
Holding a College Application Completion event allows schools, organizations, and parents to support Ohio’s high school seniors in successfully applying to college. Increasing the number of high school seniors that complete at least one college application is a fundamental step in the state's efforts to meet our postsecondary attainment goal. Together we can ensure that all students have the opportunity to receive hands–on assistance as they take the first big step towards continuing their education following high school. The College Application Completion Initiative is a part of the American College Application Campaign, a multi-state initiative designed to help all seniors to apply to college.
When is the College Application Completion Initiative?
Activities may occur year-round, however events specific to this initiative should take place during the autumn months of the academic year.
