2016 College Decision Day: Site Coordinator Resource Guide

What is GenTX Decision Day?

The goal of GenTX Decision Day is to recognize high school seniors for their postsecondary plans and encourage younger students and families to prepare early for postsecondary education. Decision Day is held annually in May and is designed to coincide with the date that most seniors must inform a college of their plans to enroll.

College Decision Day is inspired by the NCAA’s National Signing Day to reinforce that excellence in the classroom should be given as much pomp and circumstance as excellence as an athlete. NCAA’s National Signing Day is when high school seniors sign a letter of intent to play sports at a specific college. Traditionally players participate in press conferences to announce their intentions. Our goal is to mimic this excitement for ALL students going to college.

GenTX College Decision Day is a new statewide initiative for GenTX Day – all high schools in Texas are invited and encouraged to participate. College Decision Day addresses the gap between college application rates and enrollment rates among our students, and the complicated process for officially enrolling in college.
