Time & Location
About the Event
Join MAIA Education's Nick Kruter and Sharon Thomas for a conversation focused on seniors and the transition to college.About this Event
As an unprecedented school year continues, students are now entering another spring semester transformed by COVID-19. Many programs continue to be in flux, taking place in-person, on virtual platforms, or a hybrid combination. Despite these challenges, the college admissions process continues for students and families.
The second webinar in the series will focus on seniors, providing insights and recommendations for how seniors who have completed the application process can use the next couple of months to plan their transition to college. We will discuss the school decision-making process, enrollment and transition timelines, and recommendations for students seeking support services at the college level.
This webinar is for you if:
- Your teenager has completed the college admissions process through early decision, early action, or regular decision applications.
- Your student is awaiting admissions decisions but hasn't yet identified a first choice school.
- You have specific questions about accommodations for your college student.
- You want to learn more about helping your student make the transition to college.
