College Admission Process

As a service to students and families, National Association of College Admissions Counselors has created an online tool that is a central resource on changes to the college admission process due to the coronavirus outbreak. The tool includes information from colleges and universities nationwide on campus closures, deposit deadlines, and other admission-related changes.

The tool updates automatically in realtime as we receive input from postsecondary institutions

  • The Common App provides information regarding disruptions such as the coronavirus. If you are impacted, you can reach Common App’s dedicated support team via email. Fee waivers may be available if you are facing unexpected loss. Students who are having difficulty sending official test scores also have the option of sending self-reported scores to colleges.
  • Financial aid questions may be a concern. Federal Student Aid’s website includes information for students and parents, such as whether students can keep financial aid if their campus is closed and loan repayment questions.
