College Counseling Through COVID-19

Overview: Information that students and families need right now paired with strategies for effective online communication.

All aspects of college selection and future admission are being affected. Families need their school counselors to proactively reach out and offer vital assistance in the next few weeks. Current seniors are faced with making an important life decision with minimal guidance. Students are struggling with questions about necessary items such as financial aid, housing, orientation, and other college transition steps. Additionally, many families have increased concerns about their student possibly leaving home after high school graduation. For current juniors, every aspect of their college qualifications are being impacted. Students may not perform as well academically working alone at home. All extracurricular opportunities have stopped. The upcoming months that were to be full of important exams have now been cancelled or postponed.

School counselors can reach out now to help students understand what impact this semester will have on their college options in senior year. This webinar will cover technology-based counseling strategies that can be implemented now to work with students and families.
