The Coronavirus Pandemic Forces College Students to Wait for Answers

Will classes return to campus in September? Will there be new online learning options? How will student financial aid be impacted? What measures are being taken by the school to help ensure the safety of students?

These are all great questions if you are planning on being in college in September. Unfortunately, most colleges don’t have solid answers right now. The reason is that the situation is changing, sometimes rapidly but in other ways at a crawl.

Universities and colleges across the nation are considering many possible scenarios to try and determine how to proceed. But the fact of the matter is that most of those scenarios involve waiting to see what happens over the coming weeks and maybe even part (or most) of the summer in order to make better decisions.

The truth is that fewer and fewer schools are realistically expecting things to be completely normal by September. Plus, many things have changed in the lives of students that are resulting in appeals over the amount of financial aid that has been set aside for the next school year.

How can you keep up? Staying in touch with your school and the financial aid office will be vital in the upcoming weeks.
