Senior College Updates

Given that the spring of senior year is generally used as a decisive time in the college process we wanted to share some information that you may find helpful. 

*If you have any questions or want to talk about plans post-CHS  (making a final college choice, financial aid, career questions, etc...) please let me know! We can set up a call/ video chat or discuss over email​ while also keeping your counselor in the loop. ​ksleight@chatham-nj.org 

 

COLLEGE DECISION DAY

For a lot of colleges, traditionally the day you have to make your college choice decision (Candidate Reply Day/Decision Day) is May 1.

 

  • Due to COVID-19 many colleges are extending their Decision Dates (June 1)
  • Please note this is NOT the case for all colleges, some will remain May 1

 

 

  • Feel free to use this link from NACAC and the filters on the site to see if your school falls into that category

 

  • FYI-Ultimately schools that do decide to extend their decision date will probably email all of their applicants, so it is always best to go off of what is direct from the institutions. 

 

MAKING A DECISION

To help make these decisions, some of you may have been planning on visiting schools in the upcoming weeks. While that likely is no longer an option (see which admission events are cancelled here) please check out the multiple virtual options that are available.
