What can Srs do in lieu of college campus visits?
As many of you have received college acceptances and are awaiting to hear from the remainder colleges, we have received notices that most colleges have decided to cancel on-campus visits and admitted student activities which are typically done during this time. COVID19 is changing the way things are normally done on a daily basis and we will do our best to keep you informed.
Historically, all acceptances should be released no later than April 1st and that has not changed. Additionally, commitment day is May 1st (the day you commit to attending a college by submitting your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) deposit). However, because of COVID19 your commitment date may change from May 1st to June 1st. We will let you know just as soon as we know.
In the meantime, colleges have begun announcing optional opportunities that students can take advantage of in lieu of visiting college campuses. Below are a few suggestions you can find simply by checking on the colleges website:
- Live Chats
- Live Stream Sessions
- Parent FaceBook Groups
- Admitted Student Networks
- Virtual Campus Tours
- College Instagram Accounts
Lastly, make sure to check out acceptance letters for additional information and updates on admissions websites. If all else fails….. let good instinct and your heart lead the way!
Remember to contact your counselor with questions!
