COVID-19 Information for Your Students

Unprecedented Times

In any year, you help your students navigate questions and uncertainties about the college process—and this page aims to support you in that work. But this cycle, students, counselors, and colleges alike are confronted with unprecedented considerations as the pandemic brings profound change to our daily lives. To help address some of these considerations, our Director of Undergraduate Admission, Liz Kinsley, has written several blog posts for prospective applicants. You may find them helpful as well.
