During these difficult times, we are here to keep our counselor community updated on the latest changes and information regarding admissions policies in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have put together a resource page that addresses many of the concerns our counselors, students, and parents may have for our member institutions. This page includes the most up to date information from each of our institutions regarding deadlines, orientation, testing, and much more.
You can visit our COVID-19 resources and updates page here or for added convenience, we have included the link in the yellow banner throughout our website.
On behalf of the STAR Network, we hope that you find this information helpful and relevant. We will continue to provide updates and announcements as new information becomes available. Stay safe and healthy out there!
