Oklahoma high school seniors urged to apply to college Nov. 16-20

High school seniors across the state are being encouraged to submit college admission applications during Oklahoma College Application Week, Nov. 16-20.

The goal of College App Week is to get more senior students — especially those who haven’t considered attending college and those who would be the first in their families to attend — to apply and establish relationships with colleges and universities that could lead to enrollment.

Oklahoma higher education Chancellor Glen Johnson said College App Week began in 2012 with 24 school districts and has expanded to more than 80 districts participating this year.

The program provides immediate, personal guidance for seniors as they go through the application process and learn how to enroll and how to apply for financial aid.

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 are there to assist students during the process.
