West Virginia's 13th annual College Application and Exploration Week will be held across the state from October 31-November 4, 2022.

College Application and Exploration Week is a chance for the entire school community to discuss college options and promote college-going. Schools that are the most successful start small, then add components every year. Often, practices initiated for College Application and Exploration Week become infused within the school culture year-round.

Hundreds of elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, adult education classes, community centers, home school groups, and many other educational community groups across West Virginia participate each year.

To be recognized as an official participant, schools and community organizations must register. Schools that register before October 7 will receive a free toolkit. Additional lessons, resources, and information will be provided via email and online.


1. An Online College-Going Culture Assessment Survey: This assessment tool can help you evaluate your school community's level of maturity when it comes to developing a strong college-going culture. There are no official scores. Additionally, this information will help WVHEPC follow regional and county data trends. You may find the survey within the registration, the toolkit, and here:

2. College Fair Applications: Site Coordinators who are overseeing SENIORS in high school, please keep track of the applications submitted during your College Fairs. These numbers can be counted toward your yearly total.

3. Multi-School Level Responsibility Registration:  If you are responsible for multiple groups of students, please register each group individually. For example, if your school is a K-8 school, please register for both elementary and middle school.
