The Coronavirus and Your Final Semester of High School

We understand the circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic may have changed the trajectory of your academic year. It has affected us, too.

Please send your transcripts to us as soon as you can, but know that we understand there are currently a lot of unanswered questions.

While we generally expect the remainder of your senior year of high school to be consistent with the academic and personal record presented in your application, rest assured that no matter what happens, we will work with you and be flexible.
