BUSTING MYTHS about COLLEGE during COVID

Navigating the college application and financial aid process during a pandemic is new for all of us. And it’s possible you’ve heard from mixed messages along the way—from the news or your well-meaning relative or even your guidance office. So, you may be left wondering: “Are standardized test really waived, or should I find a way to take them anyway?” or “My financial aid package is based on my family’s pre-pandemic income—will I even be able to afford to attend?” Our admissions counselors are here to debunk a few myths surrounding college during COVID and guide you on your next steps. It’s easier than you might think!

As always, contact us at www.gordon.edu/admissions with any questions!
