The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) has posted information on its website for colleges and universities on what to consider and how to implement changes in policies and practices affected by COVID-19. Institutions are urged to consider long-term implications of any changes made now. Overall guidance suggests the following:
- Adapt policies as put forth by accreditation bodies, state agencies, sporting regulators, or other governing agencies as appropriate.
- Clearly articulate new policies or requirement on an accessible web page or via email to prospects, faculty and staff.
The webpage also includes recommendations on transfer evaluation credit and key questions to consider. In addition, AACRAO invites questions and issues for the guidance team to consider, and provides resources to help institutions navigate the new “normal.” The site is updated regularly.
