Schaumburg Library helps families prepare for college amid COVID-related changes
College admission processes are changing and Schaumburg Library is ready to help families navigate those changes with the free, online program "What Does 'Test-Optional' Really Mean?" at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13.
COVID-19 brought the cancellation of standardized tests in spring 2020. Many colleges joined the growing list of universities to announce a test-optional admission process. Some colleges announced this will be only for this fall 2020, while others made this a permanent change. Thomas Jaworski of Quest College Consulting will help families gain insight on what it means for a college to review an application without standardized test scores, while also identifying the pros and cons of submitting these exams.
This program will take place online on Zoom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13. After registering, you will receive an email with a link to the Zoom webinar at least one hour in advance of the program. If the event is full, or if you prefer, you can watch the event live streamed on the library's YouTube channel at SchaumburgLibrary.tv.
