College Planning Program

ACTFL has partnered with NRCCUA and Encourage (formerly MyOptions) to offer high school language educators an opportunity have their students participate in the myCollegeOptions college planning program. This program provides a self-assessment for students to indicate subjects of interest, current academic achievements, and to be sent more information about potential college matches and scholarship opportunities.

ACTFL does not collect or have access to any of the individual data collected by this program; all data is collected and contained solely by NRCCUA. Participation is optional and free, and offered to all high school educators, regardless of ACTFL membership status. Aggregate data and reports are shared with ACTFL, but all confidentiality is maintained. ACTFL does not have access to student information, individual answers, or unique identifiers. If you would like to opt-out of participating, please select the "no solicit" option in your settings under your "My ACTFL" portal.

Encourage is currently in the process of converting their paper survey into e-format. Anyone interested in having your students participate should email and include “request access to the ACTFL e-survey” in the message to be included. Educators may also email to request mailed paper surveys to distribute to students.
