Arlington, VA (April 23, 2020) —  The National Association for College Admission Counseling today released an update of its popular resource cataloging changes in college admission procedures on campuses around the world. 

The revised resource, created for students and families in the aftermath of the COVID-19 emergency, includes campus-specific information regarding:

  • College admission events;
  • Decision and deposit dates;
  • NEW! Plans and policies regarding high school transcripts and standardized test scores;
  • NEW! Plans and policies regarding summer and fall semester instruction;
  • NEW! Plans and policies affecting the admission and enrollment of international students.

The tool was created in March to make it easier for students and others to navigate the admission process during this unprecedented time of upheaval. So far, nearly 1,100 colleges and universities from around the world have submitted their information.

Both public and private postsecondary institutions are included on the list.

NACAC will continue to update the tool as it 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.”

Throughout March and April, the association has urged its members to submit campus-specific updates and asked all NACAC members to share the resource with students and families.
