I work at a residential facility. We had to send all of our scholars home. Which means we aren't having regular access to our mail. Are schools sending acceptance emails to students as well?

Reminder that MOACAC is partnering with StriveScan for a Virtual College Exploration week, April 20-23. A full schedule of sessions should be released early next week to MOACAC high school members and posted to our website. Students will be able to sign up for sessions on various college planning topics or specialty groups of colleges.

Thank you everyone, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. I am running off to a meeting, but I am happy to help with any further questions at any time!
Russell Brannen
01:06:13
Does the extension of certain Scholarship Central applications also change when students will be notified?
Kaitlyn Venta
01:06:44
Yes - students will be finding out later. Scholarship providers know that can make it harder for students to make a decision, but wanted to make sure students had time to complete applications
Kaitlyn Venta
01:06:49
they are trying to find the balance

I would encourage reconsidering Decision Day; indecision right now is wise, as students wait to see how things shake out in the coming weeks. If you'd like to hear more, pleas feel free to email me at Teresa@sfstl.org. I can share past Scholarship Foundation blogs on the topic.
