About this Event

As students return to school this fall, the roadmap to apply to college is foggy for many families. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the traditional college application process on its head. The spring semester was disrupted and traditional letter grades were replaced with pass/fail marks at thousands of schools across the United States. SATs/ACTs, extracurriculars, and athletics have been cancelled. College fairs and admission officer visits to schools have been cancelled. In-person admission tours and interviews have been moved online.

To help sort through these churning waters, EXPLO has developed a free web series: Competitive College Admissions in The Age of COVID.

The series aims to support students and their families as they navigate the murky waters of applying to college during a global pandemic. Many of the traditional pathways to admission have been disrupted, and we have convened a group of experts to shine some light on this year’s application process, as well as answer questions that many families have been asking in these turbulent times.

We have an expert panel of senior admission officials joining us for this conversation.
