Many Missouri high schools host Decision Day events to celebrate their seniors’ plans for college or military service.

Decision Day is held each year on or near May 1 – the day most colleges and universities ask that you notify them of your plans to enroll for the fall semester.

Even if your school isn’t participating in Decision Day, you can join the celebration by posting your plans on Facebook and Twitter using #MODecisionDay, #IDecided, or #Classof2019.

Once you decide where you will attend college, be sure to complete any requirements necessary to officially enroll by the school’s deadline.

If you haven’t applied to college or been admitted, it’s not too late. Get started today!

As you finalize plans for college, be sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to learn about student financial aid to help you pay for college. Use this summer checklist to stay on track before heading to college in the fall.
