Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for joining yesterday's conference call, and for your service to students, families, and your communities. In the coming weeks, we are planning to celebrate the higher education community's continued efforts and partnerships - and the impressive movement to bring us closer to the President's goal of leading the world in college attainment, and ensuring that no student is priced out of a college education. To that end, we are inviting you to join us once again during the White House's Back to School efforts to connect more students and families with the Scorecard<collegescorecard.ed.gov> and the FAFSA<fafsa.gov>, through tools like Up Next, in the coming weeks.

To sign up to join these efforts, please describe your plans by completing all fields in this new link<https://www.whitehouse.gov/webform/informing-college-choice-and-helping-more-americans-pay-college> by September 9, 2016 at 6:00PM for a chance to have your work highlighted later this month. Please contact ewaldo at who.eop.gov<mailto:ewaldo at who.eop.gov> and yshi at who.eop.gov<mailto:yshi at who.eop.gov> with any questions. We will follow up with more information about the Day of Action on October 1.
