About College Decision Day

West Virginia’s College Decision Day initiative is part of a growing national effort to celebrate seniors for their postsecondary plans and assist them and their families in enrolling in and transitioning to college.

College Decision Day events recognize students who plan to pursue…
  • a two-year or four-year degree 
  • a career or technical certificate
  • a workforce training program 
  • military service 

College Decision Day WV is one of the College Foundation of West Virginia’s (CFWV’s) three statewide college-planning milestone events that, along with College Application and Exploration Week and statewide FAFSA completion events, help guide 12th grade students and their families in planning, applying, paying and enrolling in college. High schools that participate in all three activities and complete the required post-event surveys will be recognized in Fall 2019 as a CFWV Champion of College Access and Success.
