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.

Registration to be recognized as an official participating school for the 2017 College Decision Day campaign is now closed. However, if you would still like to host a Decision Day, you may download the online toolkit to get started.

Requirements for participation:

College Decision Day events must include two primary components:

  1. A celebration to recognize students who have chosen to pursue postsecondary education.
  2. A workshop or presentation to assist students in enrolling in and transitioning to college.

The event must occur sometime between April 15 and June 15. Event coordinators must also complete a brief online survey following their local event.
