Schools/sites implementing Ohio College Application Month events commit to the following:

  • Register to become an Ohio College Application Month site.  
  • Host a program, preferably during the school day, open to all high school seniors interested in applying – with a focus on engaging first-generation, low-income and other students who may otherwise not apply to college. The event can be over multiple days or concentrated on just one day.
  • Identify and convene a school team comprised of staff and community members.
  • Leverage support of the school team to ensure that students are prepared to participate in the event.
  • Engage the local community, families, and others through volunteer opportunities, information letters, and advertising the program.
  • Create a college-going culture within the school through a variety of approaches.
  • Collect data resulting from the campaign, such as the number of students participating and the number of applications submitted.
  • Complete the Ohio College Application Month Site Coordinator Survey once your event has ended.
  • Follow-up with students to ensure applications submitted are complete – transcripts, college entrance exam scores, letters of recommendation are submitted, as well as the FAFSA application.
