ABOUT

  • The goal of  Ohio College Application Month 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 Month allows schools, organizations, and parents to support Ohio’s high school seniors in successfully applying to college. 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. Ohio College Application Month is a part of the American College Application Campaign, a multi-state initiative designed to help all seniors to apply to college.
  • Ohio College Application Month is an initiative by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, Ohio Department of Education, and the American College Application Campaign to help all graduating seniors navigate through the college admissions process and ensures that each student submits at least one admissions application. Ohio College Application Month (OCAM) partners include: schools and Educational Service Centers throughout Ohio, public and private colleges and universities in Ohio, Ohio Association of College Admissions Counselors, Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, and Battelle for Kids.
