What are the expectations for applying to colleges at this time during COVID-19 ?

Posted by:

Many college admissions officials are reviewing applications without the benefit of standardized test scores such as SAT/ACT, as well as missing data from the Spring 2020 semester because of limitations from online learning. As a result, what is available to them will be even more significant to the acceptance process such as college essays, transcripts that indicate academic rigor as well as previous AP scores, and extracurricular activities. 

For example, the University of Houston has gone test-optional for admission with or without a test score for prospective applicants for next year's high school graduates. UH indicates that applicants will not be disadvantaged by applying without a test score.

It is vital that you review policy admissions requirements on the college websites you are interested in, as soon as possible.
