Visit the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s (NACAC) Coronavirus Impact page for a search database on institutions’ decisions on admissions events, candidate reply deadlines, and deposit deadlines.
Another NACAC database provides updates from individual high schools on how their school counselors are continuing to provide college planning and admissions services to their students, especially seniors planning to enroll this fall.
Some school counselors are posting questions that their college-bound seniors need answers to, such as:
Examples: Questions Students are Seeking on Postsecondary Institution Websites:
Are you willing to change test requirements or recommendations for juniors or seniors given test date cancellations?
Will you require “final” transcripts for accepted or wait-listed seniors?
How do you plan to handle AP course completion and/or testing for admission and placement purposes?
Will early course registrations or summer programming be offered?
Will you honor admission offers for international students without knowledge of current travel restrictions?
We are working to gather and share information here on how institutions based in New England are handling admissions and enrollment decisions.
The College Board cancelled SAT tests scheduled in March and May, and will assess the status of tests scheduled for June 6, 2020 at a later date. In the meantime, students are encouraged to access free resources provided by the College Board and Kahn Academy.
