(Updated March 17, 2020) -- NACAC is closely monitoring the evolving news about the coronavirus (COVID-19). This webpage provides updates on how the virus impacts NACAC members and other college counseling and admission professionals as well as students and families.
NACAC Programs, Events, and Conferences
Participant safety is a priority at all NACAC programs, events, and conferences, and we are closely watching news regarding the coronavirus outbreak. Updates will be posted here and also communicated to NACAC members and key audiences.
This is a dynamic situation and we are sensitive to concerns about travel and large gatherings. We are working diligently to learn and share with you as much as possible to ensure smooth and safe planning and programming.
College Admission Process
As a service to students and families, NACAC 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. Please share the link widely: nacacnet.org/college-admission-status-coronavirus
In general, NACAC encourages flexibility with deposit deadlines and other admission-related issues that may be impacted by the outbreak. Open communication between counselors and admission officers about disruptions and possible accommodations is encouraged. For example:
Study Abroad Programs
The Centers for Disease Control issued recommendations that institutions of higher education cancel or postpone foreign exchange or study abroad programs. See this list of study abroad programs canceled or altered for Spring 2020.
The IBO, which administers the International Baccalaureate program, provides updates on its website regarding the cancellation of planned events, school closures, and extensions for coursework deadlines.
