  • In the face of COVID-19, Washington’s colleges and universities are being flexible about course requirements, test scores, deadlines, and more. Contact admissions offices directly if you have special circumstances or questions about how to meet requirements and deadlines during COVID-19.
    • Some colleges are modifying admissions requirements:
      • Many colleges have extended the deadline to officially decide where you plan to enroll. Many have also extended the deadline to make deposits.
      • Some campuses have gone test-optional, meaning you do not have to submit scores from standardized tests like SAT and ACT.
    • If someone in your family has lost a job or is working less, colleges may be able to provide more financial aid:
      • If you’ve already filed a 2020-21 FAFSA or WASFA, talk to the financial aid office about your situation.
      • If you haven’t applied for financial aid, it’s not too late. Submit your application, then follow up with the college.
    • Many colleges are offering virtual campus tours you can do online from home.
    • Remember, it’s not too late to apply! Many of Washington’s four-year public and private, not-for-profit colleges and universities are still accepting applications for fall 2020.
