CLICKS – Virtual Partnership Celebration
CLICKS is hosting an essential conversation on how to get prepared for college!
On Saturday, April 23, 2022, at 11:00 am, we will have financial aid experts, admissions professionals, and a college president on board to give you an inside idea of what college preparation entails, and how to get ahead of the game.
So many youth and parents become overwhelmed when dealing with applications, college admissions, and financial aid. With the impact of the pandemic, many families no longer have the financial reserves to send their youth to college. According to LendingTree, a popular online lending marketplace based in the U.S., nearly 40% of parents have had to tap into their kids’ college fund in order to cover costs due to illness or unemployment stemming from the pandemic.
As stated in a new report from the National Center for Education Statistics on the ways the pandemic affected undergraduate student finances, housing, and enrollment:
- About 40 percent of undergraduates experienced a financial disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic,
- 8.2 percent either withdrew or took a leave of absence from their institution,
- 84.1 percent say that some or all of their classes moved to online-only formats, and
- Overall, 87.5 percent of students reported experiencing a disruption or change in their enrollment due to COVID-19.
