    NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR COLLEGE ADMISSION COUNSELING:

    The NACAC has created an online tool for students and families to assist with the navigation of college admissions events, deposit dates, etc.  While this is an excellent resource, we always recommend verifying the information directly with the college/university.

  • LIU Updates


    Dear LIU students and Parents,

     

    The following information has been sent to us from LIU:

    As one of our LIU Post High School Scholars (HSS) partners, Please know that, if in any way, we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.  We are confident that at some point in the not-too-distant future we will start to return to normalcy.  When that happens, we will celebrate and when that happens, LIU will be available to support your program. 

     

    A few of the LIU dual enrollment (HSS) high school teachers have asked about their students, under the present “remote learning” conditions, earning their college credits.  The High School Scholars students, who have registered for the course credit, will be given the college grade/credit that is granted by the HSS teacher.  LIU will honor your instructional plan and the HSS teachers’ assessments of their students.


     

    LIU wishes you and your family good health and a quick return to a more normal work environment.
