Sharing Ideas: tuition equity for undocumented students

Many schools and organizations participating in Oregon College Application Week work with students who are undocumented. You may or may not know which of your students are undocumented, and it is important that you are prepared to support all of your students, regardless of their immigration status. Therefore, we're offering the following information and sharing how some schools are planning to serve this population of students during their CAW event.


Sharing Ideas: application follow-up

Completing the application form is a critical part of applying to college, but it's not the only thing a student needs to do. In most cases, they'll need to submit supplemental credentials as well: transcripts, letters of recommendation, test scores. We've provided a one-page sheet we call "I Applied ... Now What?" that offers students a list of next steps, including a reminder to get those supplemental materials sent off to colleges as soon as possible.


Sharing Ideas: promoting your event

Here's an excellent reminder that comes in the form of a tip from David Douglas High School (Portland):

If you've got an existing and upcoming activity in which all of your seniors will participate, use it to promote your CAW event. This year, DDHS is holding their schoolwide PSAT a couple of weeks before CAW. While the 9th-11th graders are in testing, the seniors will be gathered for an event when other senior-only activities (i.e. Josten's will be there) are taking place. They'll be talking up CAW and making sure students know what they need to do to prepare.
