Arlington, VA (March 18, 2020) — As a service to students and families, NACAC has created a new resource cataloging campus-specific changes in college admission events, deposit dates, and more as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

The purpose of the tool—which features information from postsecondary institutions—is to make it easier for students and others to navigate the admission process during this unprecedented time of upheaval. So far, more than 450 colleges and universities from around the world have submitted their information.

Both public and private postsecondary institutions are included on the list. The resource will update in real time as NACAC receives new information from colleges and universities.

“Students need reliable information to assist them in making informed choices during this uncertain time,” said Jayne Caflin Fonash, the association's president. “This collaborative resource does just that.”

In an email on Tuesday, Fonash urged the association’s postsecondary members to submit campus-specific updates and asked all NACAC members to share the resource with students and families.
