Celebrate Iowa College Decision Week May 16–20
College Decision Week is dedicated to recognizing high school seniors for their postsecondary decision and encourage the college aspirations of underclassmen. Celebrating students’ postsecondary plans holds them accountable to their commitment, recognizes their hard work, provides them with a sense of pride for their accomplishments, and spreads enthusiasm across the community and school district for future students to begin preparing for their postsecondary plans.
During the week of Monday, May 16 – Friday, May 20, Iowa College Aid will host its second annual statewide virtual celebration for Decision Week with five programs live-streamed on YouTube, celebrating a different pathway each day of the week.
Students with plans to attend a four-year private school will be announced on Friday, May 20 from 10:30AM – 12:30PM. Register for the live stream today!
