College and Career Announcements

  • College Instant Admissions Events

    We have changed the format of this event from what was previously planned. Please disregard the all-day, multiple school, Instant Admissions Event previously scheduled for Tuesday, January 28th.

    Listed below are each school, the date they will be present, and a link for a Google Doc sign up sheet for each school. Students do not need to start their application ahead of time but if they would prefer, it would likely make the decision process quicker.

    All Admissions will be located in the Glass Study Room in the Library on their specified day. Students will be called out for their appointment times.

    An Admissions Representative from each school will be here at WLHS to meet with students and they can find out the same day whether they will be accepted to the College or University! If you have not had the chance to complete your application or have any questions feel free to still sign up for an appointment to meet with an Admissions Representative to complete the process. The College and Careers office will handle getting the Admissions Representative all supporting documents needed.

    About Oregon GEAR UP


    The goal of the GEAR UP program is to ensure that Oregon's low-income middle school and high school students are prepared for, pursue, and succeed in postsecondary education whether that be a Bachelor's degree, Associates degree, certificate, apprenticeship or other training.

    GEAR UP years of service

    Oregon GEAR UP - which stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs - is supported by a grant from theU.S. Department of Education and the contributions of many community partners. We work with select middle and high schools over seven years to create a college-going culture by providing funding and technical assistance, professional development for educators, and summer opportunities for students.

    Our schools range in size but all serve low-income students in rural communities. School staff work as a team to design program activities that meet the needs of their community grounded in our research-based model. Examples include college visits, financial aid awareness nights for parents and students, tutoring and academic support, and career fairs. The Oregon GEAR UP office and its partner organizations also sponsor statewide activities that complement the efforts of school personnel.

    Oregon Goes To CollegeIn addition to working with GEAR UP schools, our program conducts outreach and offers college readiness resources to all of Oregon's low-income serving middle and high schools including statewide initiatives like College Application Week and It's A Plan, comprehensive checklists for students, parents, and educators from middle school through college. GEAR UP is currently administered by Oregon State University as part of the Office of Precollege Programs; the Oregon University System administered the program from 2002-2014. Note: Portland Public Schools has a separate GEAR UP partnership grant.
