)-- Midwest College Consulting (MCC), an independent college advisory firm, announces a free webinar to guide high school seniors and their families in selecting a college while under quarantine. The webinar takes place Monday, April 13 at 7pm EST. Access to the event, titled, "COVID-19 and the Class of 2020," is available by signing up on the MCC website: midwestcollegeconsulting.com.
“The college selection process can be anxiety-provoking under normal circumstances,” explained MCC founder, Dana Rolander. “However with college campuses closed and the changing financial circumstances of many families, students are faced with a host of unexpected challenges very late in the process,” she said. Rolander, a private college consultant and professional member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and the Higher Education Consultants Association is presenting an informative webinar and Q&A session, along with financial aid expert Dan Bisig from College and Beyond, and executive director of the mental health advocacy group 1N5, Nancy Eigel-Miller, to guide families through the process.
Interested families are asked to RSVP to the free webinar at midwestcollegeconsulting.com and will receive instructions on how to join the group’s online event, which will include insight on colleges’ rapidly evolving policies as a result of COVID-19. The event will also provide a platform for families to ask specific questions about securing additional financing, gathering information from virtual resources, enrollment changes and tips for managing increased anxiety throughout the process.
The event is recommended for families of high school seniors, students, and high school guidance counselors. To reserve space at the event and for more information, please visit midwestcollegeconsulting.com
