(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.) -- National College Decision Day is Monday, June 1, extended by one month due to the COVID-19 crisis. Decision Day is traditionally a deadline for high school seniors to make a choice about the college they will attend in the fall and allows colleges the time to adequately prepare for the arrival of new students.

Geneva College has taken numerous steps to make a decision much easier for students, including waiving the SAT/ACT standardized test scores because of closed testing centers, charging no application fee, automatically considering students for scholarships and grants, and offering help to families whose finances have been devastated due to the pandemic.

According to Geneva College President, Calvin L. Troup, PhD, the college is making plans for a return to on-campus instruction in the fall semester with multiple contingencies to account for changes in the course of COVID-19. Dr. Troup says, "The strength of a Geneva education stands on 'life-on-life' instruction with the faculty, conversation in the dining hall, participation in student activities—living together pro Christo et patria in community. We do not know what course COVID-19 might take, but we are preparing to begin together, in person, on campus."
