In the coming weeks, the admissions departments of 4 local universities (Oregon State, University of Oregon, Portland State, and Western Oregon) will be on-site at McKay to evaluate students’ applications and transcripts to admit students ON THE SPOT! These unique opportunities for McKay students are limited to the dates below and are a great way for McKay students to demonstrate their college readiness and receive admission to college immediately!

McKay students who wish to take advantage of this opportunity are responsible to:

  1. sign up with Mr. Brooks in the Student Center at least 1 week in advance
  2. complete the online application and essays for their Universities of choice ahead of time
  3. meet with the admissions department at the arranged time
  4. arrange with their teacher(s) for the time in class they miss.

These admissions opportunities will take approximately 30 minutes. Mr. Brooks and Counselors will also prepare students’ transcripts and 2nd semester schedules for the admissions process ahead of time. All University admissions are conditional, based on successful completion of high school graduation requirements and admissions requirements at the various universities. In addition, application fees are either waived (University of Oregon) or deferred (OSU, PSU, WOU) at the time of this registration opportunity.
