Q: What process will you have for high school visits or information sessions if high schools are not allowing visitors once they reopen?
We will be offering virtual information sessions for students and school counselors utilizing Google Hangouts, Zoom or Webex - whatever platform your school prefers to use.  We are able to meet individually with students or in large groups and can schedule as many sessions as you need.  We are also available to meet with parents in the evening, if needed.
Q: How are admissions processes changing for the students graduating in 2021?
Utica College will still offer Early Decision, Early Action and Rolling Admissions. We have had a test optional policy for many years, but based on the recent issues with SAT and ACT testing availability, we are extending the test optional policy to also apply to Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Nursing admissions processes for the 2021 admissions cycle only.  Students are encouraged to submit a strong personal statement and a list of extracurricular activities along with their high school transcripts and application.
Q: How will Utica College use transcripts from the 2020 school year, specifically for the marking periods from March through the end of the school year?
Utica College will take into consideration the new grading process and scale each school has adopted during this time.  We encourage schools to include a grading description or key with the transcript and school materials so that our Admissions Staff can better understand your school's grading changes.
