Description

The transition to college is a major step for any student and this fall, in particular, will involve additional considerations for students to be successful. We’ve gathered a group of college transitions experts to help you figure out what you should be thinking about AND doing to help students make a successful transition, including:

  • How is college different from high school academically?
  • What are the top tips for a new college student looking to succeed in college?
  • What classes should a student take their first year if they are undecided about a major?
  • How should a student with learning differences or physical disabilities advocate for themselves?
  • If a student is starting college online instead of in person, how can they make the most of that less-than-ideal situation?

Meet the Panel:

Elizabeth Pyle, M.Ed., President and Founder of College Success Plan, has been working with students for over 25 years as an educator in the public/private school system, tutor and successful business owner in the educational field.

With more than 30 years experience in education ranging from a social studies teacher to a school counselor at the secondary level to the coordinator of the Rhode Island School Counseling Project, Dr. Belinda Wilkerson, Founder and President of Steps to the Future, LLC employs her education and experience to benefit students as they plan their post secondary transition.

Annie Tulkin found her passion for working with students with disabilities when she was the Associate Director of the Academic Resource Center at Georgetown University. She is the Founder and Director of Accessible College and an expert in the area of college transition for students with physical disabilities and health conditions.

Jed Applerouth

Description

The world of standardized testing has changed rapidly in the last few months - spring SAT and ACT test dates were postponed, APs became at-home, open-book exams, and the ACT’s move to computer-based testing will soon be here. Many colleges will be “test optional” for the year, but does that mean students should be opting out of testing altogether? Students need a solid game plan to guide them in this new testing environment. Join Jed Applerouth, PhD to learn about standardized testing in the 2020-2021 school year and how students can best prepare.
