Path to College Events

Path to College Events Overview (on Prezi)

Schools and education organizations are invited to participate in Tennessee's Path to College events. Building off of the success of Tennessee’s College App Week, the Path to College events are focused on continuing the momentum and excitement around the college-going process during a student’s junior and senior year. The Path to College events serve as a venue to inform students and their families of college options and the benefits of those options. Path to College events also walk students and families through the steps necessary to pursue their best college option. Furthermore, during the initial years of Tennessee Promise, these events serve as an additional platform to tell families about the opportunities associated with the scholarship and as a mechanism to ensure they meet all of the necessary requirements and deadlines. In order for the full potential of Tennessee Promise to be realized, students and families need to be aware of and understand the opportunity of higher education. 

The events are typically hosted by high schools, college access organizations, and, more and more often, elementary and middle schools. Typically, a school counselor or similar staff member at a non-profit organization will register for each event. We ask that only one person per school register for each event.

Each of the four Path to College events engage students on four important parts of the college-going process: planning (College Planning Night), applying (College App Week), paying (College Goal Tennessee), and going (College Signing Day).
