In a typical year, families of high school juniors and seniors spend a significant part of the spring, summer, and fall seasons visiting college campuses across the nation, completing early acceptance applications, and finalizing their plans for the future. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the college admission process, including campus tours, college fairs, and early admission programs. But there is still a path forward.
