The Ohio Associate for College Admission Counseling (OACAC) is proud to host this year’s Summer Institute at the University of Toledo from 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, July  27th to 1:00 p.m. Friday, July 29th. This three-day intensive mentor-based institute brings together new admissions counselors with two years or less of experience together to foster a deeper understanding of the interaction between admissions counselors and high school counselors, as well as expert insight into current trends and issues within the profession. 

Through small mentor group discussions, workshops, and presentations, participants will learn; overarching job responsibilities, best practices, recruitment/travel, standardized testing, and advancing through the profession, to name a few. We are certain that the unique combination of a vibrant curriculum and diverse group of participants, committee members, and mentors will offer you a refreshing and rewarding experience.

Refunds will be reviewed upon request up to two weeks (14 calendar days) before the first day of the event. Requests must be sent via email to execadmin@oacac.org . Please include an explanation for your request, the payee and USPS address. You may be refunded any monies less any applicable credit-card processing fees if the original payment was by credit card. Refunds may be issued by OACAC check. Refund checks will be issued no sooner than 30 days after the last day of the event. If an OACAC event is canceled by circumstances beyond the control of OACAC such as but not limited to acts of God, war, terrorist threats, government regulations, public health crisis, disaster, civil disorder, inclement weather, sudden outage of electricity or water at the venue, or curtailment of transportation facilities – to the extent that such circumstances make it illegal or impossible to allow the OACAC event to occur, the participant agrees that they will not hold OACAC liable for the cancellation and/or disruption of the event (if in progress) and thereby request a return of any paid fees including but not limited to conference registration fees, sponsorship commitment fees, exhibitor table fees, meals, hotel and transportation costs.

Food at the Event:

As caring, inclusive host organizations, we will always do our best to help you be safe and comfortable. Your hosts will offer as reasonably as possible a variety of foods that meet your lifestyle preferences (e.g. vegetarian, vegan). We are acutely aware of food allergies. While, we cannot mandate or control a nut free/allergy free/grain-free environment, we can, however, offer options and have clear signage on food when we commune together. We cannot, however, control what attendees nor passers-by bring in or consume in the venue.

We ask anyone with a food or environmental allergy to self-advocate and have a plan in place for what to do if they come in contact with an allergy causing element(s).  This may include having a medical plan, wearing a medical alert bracelet, keeping emergency medication on their person and having their cell phone on their person to call for help, if needed.
