College Signing Day 2018

Posted on March 12, 2018

As many of you may know, May 1st is the date by which many high school seniors have to let colleges know where they plan to attend in the fall. For the fifth year, Reach Higher is encouraging schools and communities to host College Signing Day to recognize students’ hard work. College Signing Day will be widely celebrated this year during the first week of May!

Check out our website, and download our College Signing Day toolkit for helpful information on how to host your College Signing Day event. We’ve also provided a webinar to assist you in planning your celebration.

Through the support of the College Football Playoff Foundation, we will be giving away $100,000 in microgrants to public school teachers. Teachers must (1) register their College Signing Day event on; (2) create a College Signing Day project on; and (3) email the link to their College Signing Day project on to to be eligible for a microgrant to support their event.

Last year, we had more than 1,500 registered events nationwide. This year, we hope that even more partners will join the movement to shine a spotlight on those students who make a commitment to pursue a postsecondary education. Register at to let us know about your event and to receive information that will help make this your best College Signing Day yet.

Make sure to follow @ReachHigher and @BetterMakeRoom for more updates, and don’t forget to use #CollegeSigningDay, #ReachHigher, and #BetterMakeRoom in your social media posts! We can’t wait to celebrate your students this spring.
