Tips For Junior Year Virtual Update

 

Tours

Physical college tours/visits are limited at this time. Most schools

have paused high school representative visits for the 2020-2021

school year. Virtual Tours and/or virtual meetings are available

and may be considered toward “tracked demonstrated interest”.

Try to “virtually visit” 2-3 colleges per week and register for tours

when offered.

Testing

Nearly half of all US colleges and universities have switched to “test

optional” for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. College Board (SAT)

and ACT have resumed testing where permitted. Additional dates

and sites have been added. Check both sites often for updated

schedule. Once posted available seats will fill quickly. Continue to

prep for tests using free online resources such as Khan Academy,

Method Test Prep, Kaplan, and many more!

Transcript

Every single quarter of high school is calculated exactly the same –

even from home. Online courses and virtual school grades will be

included in your transcript. Continue to do your best!
