Seniors...please review important information in these links due to the Coronavirus situation:
The first link is from NACAC and lists what colleges are doing as far as on campus activities, deposit due dates, etc.
The National Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) is maintaining a shared spreadsheet of changes, as published.
These two links are for Financial Aid concerns:

Opening Day FAFSA Updates
Greetings NCAN Members,
We know many of you have started working with your students on the 2019-20 FAFSA with today’s October 1 application opening. NCAN is aware of the following issues and offers the following recommendations:
Fafsa.gov is currently experiencing browser issues
FSA recommends clearing your web browser cache, and if that doesn’t work, trying a different browser.
The mobile app- myStudentAid’s IRS Data Retrieval Tool is not working
To minimize the chance of being selected for verification, NCAN recommends that students use the DRT on fafsa.govinstead of trying to manually enter tax data via the FAFSA mobile app.
The 2019-20 Paper application is hard to locate online.
Both can be found in the Forms & Worksheets section on FSA’s Resources page: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/resources
We’ve been in touch with the Office of Federal Student Aid about these issues and will continue to keep you informed about what FSA says if these problems persist.
We appreciate your patience and persistence!
The NCAN Team
