Webinar provides insight into college admission and financial aid changes amidst COVID-19

LEAP Tampa Bay recently hosted a webinar featuring local college admissions and financial aid counselors who answered questions about everything from “summer melt” to applying for financial aid. Nearly two dozen high school guidance counselors attended the hour-long webinar and walked away with information about higher education’s plans amidst the changing landscape due to COVID-19.

The panel included representatives from valued LEAP partners, including Hillsborough Community College, St. Petersburg College, University of South Florida and the University of Tampa. Questions ranged from changes expected on campuses for the fall, changes in key admissions deadlines, and what type of support can incoming students receive to help complete their FAFSA.
