SENIORS – Wondering what college/university admission changes might be occurring due to COVID-19?
NACAC (National Association of College Admissions Counselors) has created a resource page where colleges and universities are posting any changes and updates to their spring events (i.e. virtual admitted student days), changes to the date when a student has to commit, and if the date for a deposit has changed as well. The document is live, so you will see the latest information. https://www.nacacnet.org/news--publications/newsroom/college-admission-status-coronavirus/
SENIORS - Need help understanding your Financial Aid Award Letters from colleges and universities?
Watch these three Khan Academy videos that help explain the various parts of an award letter, the terms used and what types of loans are best to take (if you choose to take loans). There are also additional resources if you would like to appeal your financial aid award.
If you have any questions after watching the videos, please email Mrs. Schaeffer at firstname.lastname@example.org
