Class of 2020

Uncategorized May 26, 2020

Congratulations to the Class of 2020! This is a time of great excitement for the future and uncertainty about what college will look like in Fall 2020. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, colleges are adjusting policies and deadlines, and many families are re-evaluating their options. With ongoing questions about whether classes will be able to resume on campus in Fall 2020, families may be considering changes to their college plans. Waitlists, in many cases, are still active and enrollment deposit deadlines have been extended into June, July, and August. 

If you've been waitlisted at your first or second choice college, do not be afraid to reach out and follow-up with the Admissions. 

To stay up-to-date during this tumultuous time, current seniors and recent graduates should follow the following steps:

  •  Check your email inboxes daily for correspondence from colleges and stay on top of it.
  •  Call admissions departments to follow-up, clarify your financial aid package, and ask questions. (If no one answers, leave a message!) 
  •  Call and ask about new virtual tours, web-based information sessions, and intended to help current seniors make their admission decisions and commitments ahead of the traditional deadline on May 1st and the COVID-extended deadline of June 1st. Learn as much as possible in lieu of visiting before you make your final decision.
  •  If your family's financial circumstances have changed due to COVID-19, contact your colleges' admissions departments to ask for a "special circumstances form". It may be possible to adjust your financial aid package if your family has been impacted.
  •  Check out the NACAC College Admissions Status Update.

 The most important advice to current seniors who are still figuring out which college offer they will accept is to be persistent in communicating with colleges and getting the information you need to make the best possible decision for yourselves and your families.
