Resources for Educators

Info and resources for educators to help students and families with preparing, applying, paying and going to college.


Oregon College Information

There are countless websites and resources about going to college - it's hard to know where to begin. Oregon Goes To College is a great place to start! We focus on the basics of information about college with Oregon-specific resources and examples whenever possible.

College Checklists

The It’s A Plan checklists provide a comprehensive overview of the steps Oregon students should take for postsecondary success. Our free resources for middle school through college help educators, students, and families navigate the path to college.

12th Grade Events

We provide resources and training to schools and community-based organizations to host three major events to help seniors apply, pay and go to college: College Application Week, College Cash Campaign and Decision Day.


The Oregon GEAR UP website has even more resources for educators who are interested in creating a college-going culture at their school, including toolkits, publications, staff professional development, and a searchable database of research and resources.
