Florida College Decision Day

Florida College Access Network (FCAN) launched Florida College Decision Day to celebrate students’ plans for life after high school. Florida College Decision Day is an adaptation of former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative. Both initiatives are inspired by the NCAA’s National Signing Day, which celebrates students who have received athletic scholarships.

When is Florida College Decision Day?

Host sites and communities typically hold Florida College Decision Day on or around May 1, which is the day that students must notify colleges that they plan to attend.

What does a Florida College Decision Day event look like?

  • Recognize all students for their post-secondary plans, whether they are planning on attending 4-year college, 2-year college, technical school, or the military.
  • If possible, hold recognition in front of the entire student body to encourage younger students to start thinking about college.
  • Invite members from the community as guest speakers to congratulate students.
  • Add to the celebration by serving food, playing music, or raffling off college-related prizes.
