We know the coronavirus has changed the college decision for many students. I want you to know that here at Pacific University Oregon we’ve got three options for students to attend Pacific this fall (or spring) based on their needs. I wanted to let you know that we are preparing for our return to our beautiful campus at Pacific University for the fall Please check out this link so you know what is going on with Boxer Nation:
At Pacific we have several taskforce committees on campus working each day to ensure that graduating seniors have the opportunity to be a part of this Pacific Family, no matter what that start looks like. I’m still able to work with students to set everything up for this fall so that they feel safe and comfortable.
For Fall 2020 students can attend Pacific three different ways:
1. Come to Campus
We are planning a return to face-to-face learning and living on our Forest Grove Campus this fall. We are excited to see students and faculty working together again. We are making changes on campus and to our schedules to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission. While campus life will not be exactly what it was a year ago, it will still be campus life with face-to-face interaction with faculty, staff and fellow students and friends.
2. Study Remotely in Fall 2020
For some students and families, there may be circumstances that make joining on-campus life in the fall impossible. We will offer your courses remotely for the entire fall term or until whatever point in the semester that they feel ready to return to campus, whether that is in October or January.
3. Defer Enrollment until Spring Semester 2021
For some families, the combination of COVID-19 and the bad economy means that attending any college in the fall feels out of reach. If any family is in this situation, please let us know so we can work with them. Our first goal will be to see if there is anything we can do to make either Pathway 1 or 2, above, possible for the family. If not, we will review their options for deferral until spring.
We believe in the power of a college education to change lives, and we know that a college education remains a great investment in their future. By enrolling in classes at Pacific University this fall, they’ll take an important step toward their future.
Of course, we would like to see them at Pacific in the fall, but more importantly we want what is best for them. Call or email me today to talk over these options with any student’s you feel would benefit from attending Pacific University.

I hope you’re well and keeping safe as we all navigate the disruptions that COVID-19 has caused.
I wanted to reach out to you to give you an update about some changes the Office of Admissions at Central Washington University, has made, in response to COVID-19. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused challenges for our future Wildcats and families.

Finally, below are some great online options for high school seniors and their support network, as many are still exploring college options. This is also an excellent opportunity for high school juniors to initiate their college search and get familiar with Central Washington University.

These 30-minute, one-on-one appointments are available either via phone or video chat format. These appointments are open to first-year, transfer, and prospective students in any phase of their college search. Please feel free to direct students to me directly or to this website, https://admissions.cwu.edu/portal/faith_online_appointment where they can sign up for an appointment.

Hello from EWU Admissions,
It’s been a hard month of change. We miss visiting your school, we miss sitting down with your students to talk about next steps, and we miss dropping off swag items and stopping by to say hi.
This time in our lives is a bit surreal and we were not prepared for it. Nevertheless, we are here for you, supporting your students and staying connected. It’s the core of all we do, and it will never change.
Here are a few quick updates that can help you and your students and their families as they navigate their college future:
- We’ve created a space all things virtual
- View past Admitted Student Days
- Explore campus with videos and interactive maps
- Sign up for 30-minute sessions on financial aid, academics, student life, and more
- Schedule one-on-on calls or virtual meetings
- Schedule a private virtual group visit for your class
- The live-on requirement for 2020-21 is waived
- For next year only, new students will not be required to live on campus
- Residence halls are still open and available for students
- If a student is unsure about what to do, we encourage students to live on campus
- This change continues an EWU practice of emphasizing safety and flexibility
- For many reasons, students and families often view residence halls as safer, healthier, and more secure than other living situations
- Students will receive maximum flexibility related to contracts and fees
- We’re offering increased application fee waiver flexibility
- Waivers are still required, but we are giving more NACAC waivers to students since SAT and ACT waivers will be harder for them to obtain
- We are still admitting students for fall 2020
- Students may send unofficial transcripts for a decision
- No tests, no problem: EWU offers test-optional admission
- Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit grades on a transcript will not impact an admission decision
- EWU has not changed any AP, IB, or CLEP policies
- Our focus remains on the rigor of coursework and a student’s cumulative GPA
- The priority enrollment decision date is June 1
- If a student needs more time after June 1, we’re happy to talk to them and find a flexible solution
- Students with financial aid awards may be able to defer confirmation deposits until the fall
- We will update new student financial aid awards starting July
- If a student’s financial aid situation changes, we will work with them to adjust financial aid
- The financial aid office is very busy updating current student awards for spring and summer
Let us know how we can help and improve. If you have questions or concerns, we’d be happy to set up a virtual meeting with folks on our team to talk through the updates. Staff contact information is updated to provide a scheduling link for meetings, too.
We are communicating the same information to your students via text, calls, and emails.
Thanks for all you do and be well.
