FAQs for Prospective Students and Families Amid COVID-19

We're here to help.

Though access to campus is limited amid the spread of COVID-19, the offices of Admission and Financial Aid are working to help welcome the next class of Newberry Wolves.

 

If you still have unanswered questions, our staff is available to assist you over the phone and via email. If your call is not answered right away,  leave a detailed voicemail with your name, your student’s name, and your phone number, and we will follow up with you.

For Prospective Students and Parents

Q: Is Newberry College still accepting applications?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Office of Admission is still actively reviewing applications for admission for summer and fall 2020. You can submit your application online here or with the Common App.

 

Q: I am unable to take or retake the ACT or SAT exams due to cancellations. What would you suggest?

A: For the remainder of the fall 2020 admission cycle, Newberry College will offer test-optional admission. If you are unable to provide an ACT or SAT score, or if your scores are lower than a 17 ACT combined / 910 SAT combined, you can provide a personal statement of 300 words or more to complete the application. Please send your personal statement to admission@newberry.edu.

 

Q: Will I still be allowed to visit campus?

A: Campus visits for prospective students and families are expected to resume the week of June 29. These tours will be limited by appointment to no more than 10 individuals in any given group. More information will be announced as it becomes available.

 

Q: Is Newberry College still hosting events?

A: No. All on-campus summer activities, primarily camps and clinics, have been canceled though Friday, July 31.

For Accepted Students and Parents

Q: Will this affect the timing of the admission process?

A: The Office of Admission is still actively reviewing applications for admission in summer and fall 2020, and electronic decision notifications will continue to be sent via email and text. Printed letters may be delayed, but permissions in Wolf Den will allow admitted students to take the next steps, even if they have not received their official acceptance packet in the mail.

 

Q: Is Wolf Pack Welcome orientation still on?

A: Stay tuned for emails regarding plans for the remaining Wolf Pack Welcome sessions, as they will be held virtually until further notice.

 

Q: Will I still be allowed to visit campus?

A: Campus visits for prospective students and families are expected to resume the week of June 29. These tours will be limited by appointment to no more than 10 individuals in any given group. More information will be announced as it becomes available.

 

Q: My school is closed, and I cannot obtain an official transcript. Will you accept an unofficial transcript?

A: Yes, we can accept unofficial copies of official transcripts, or an unofficial transcript downloaded from your online student portal. However, enrollment and federal and state financial aid eligibility are contingent upon receipt of an official transcript, so the final document will need to be submitted before classes begin for the fall 2020 semester.

 

Q: Is Newberry College still hosting events?

A: No. All on-campus summer activities, primarily camps and clinics, have been canceled though Friday, July 31.

For International Students

Q: When will I receive my I-20?

A: If you are an accepted international student, and if you have submitted your $300 enrollment fee, and if you have completed all financial aid certification forms and required materials, your I-20 will be sent to you within two weeks.

 

Q: If my country has been affected by COVID-19, will I still be allowed to attend Newberry College?

A: Newberry College welcome students from all around the world. We are monitoring the situation and will adhere to any decisions made by the United States government.

 

Q: If I am not able to attend Newberry College this fall, can I defer my admission to another term?

A: Yes, you can defer your admission for up to one year. If you do not enroll at another degree-granting institution during this time, your admission and financial aid package should remain the same. If your I-20 has been issued and received, you will need a new I-20 that indicates the correct start date and term. Should you enroll in another degree-seeking institution during this time, you will have to reapply as a transfer student.

 

Q: I have not yet received my international credentials for official evaluation. What should I do?

A: We will still need your international transcripts and diplomas officially evaluated. Most of the evaluating agencies are still evaluating documentation at this point. World Education Services (WES) have notified institutions and students that they will temporarily suspend operations through the end of March, so I would recommend using another agency such as Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) or SpanTran to have your transcripts evaluated.

 

Q: I am unable to take or retake the ACT or SAT exams due to cancellations. What would you suggest?

A: For the remainder of the fall 2020 admission cycle, Newberry College will offer test-optional admission. If you are unable to provide an ACT or SAT score, or if your scores are lower than a 17 ACT combined / 910 SAT combined, you can provide a personal statement of 300 words or more to complete the application. Please send your personal statement to admission@newberry.edu.

 

Q: I am unable to take or retake my English Proficiency Exam (TOEFL, IELTS) due to cancellations and test-center closures. What would you suggest?

A: While an English Proficiency exam is still a requirement, under the circumstances, a student who is unable to provide a score can request an online interview instead. Please contact us at admission@newberry.edu to schedule your interview.

For Transfer Students

Q: Is Newberry College still accepting applications?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Office of Admission is still actively reviewing applications for admission for summer and fall 2020. You can submit your application online here or with the Common App.

 

Q: My school is closed, and I cannot obtain an official transcript. Will you accept an unofficial transcript?

A: Yes, we can accept unofficial copies of official transcripts, or an unofficial transcript downloaded from your online student portal. Your submissions should include your name, final grades, and credit hours, and should come from each college or university you have attended. However, enrollment and federal and state financial aid eligibility are contingent upon receipt of an official transcript, so the final document will need to be submitted before classes begin for the fall 2020 semester. Email your documents to admission@newberry.edu.

 

Q: What if my GPA is affected by changes due to COVID-19? How will this affect my admission to Newberry College?

A: We will continue to review applications holistically and take these unforeseen circumstances into account. If you are concerned about your GPA, please email us at admission@newberry.edu.

 

Q: Will I still be allowed to visit campus?

A: Campus visits for prospective students and families are expected to resume the week of June 29. These tours will be limited by appointment to no more than 10 individuals in any given group. More information will be announced as it becomes available.

For Guidance Counselors

Q: I am scheduled to have a representative from Newberry College on my campus. Will you still be coming?

A: No. At this point, our spring travel has been suspended through July. If we have not already done so, we will reach out to you to reschedule our visit. If you wish, you can contact us at admission@newberry.edu with good dates and times to reschedule.

 

Q: Will Newberry's file processing be delayed?

A: We are continuing to review and process applications and materials. If you have a student for whom you wish to check the application status, email us at admission@newberry.edu.

 

Q: Our school is closed, and students are unable to get their official transcripts. Would you consider unofficial transcripts?

A: Yes, we will accept unofficial  transcripts for preliminary review. If you have access to official or unofficial transcripts for students who have applied to Newberry and who are looking to complete their applications, please email us at admission@newberry.edu. Of course, official transcripts are required before the beginning of classes in the new academic year.

 

Q: We have students who are unable to take or retake the ACT or SAT exams due to cancellations. What would you suggest?

A: For the remainder of the fall 2020 admission cycle, Newberry College will offer test-optional admission. If students are unable to provide ACT or SAT scores, or if their scores are lower than 17 ACT combined / 910 SAT combined, they can provide personal statements of 300 words or more to complete the application. Please have students send their personal statements to admission@newberry.edu.

Financial Aid

Q: I’ve submitted my FAFSA, but I haven’t received an award letter yet. When will I know more about my financial aid?

A: Each week, the Office of Financial Aid sends out awards to the most recently admitted students. Once your admission application is complete, and you are accepted to Newberry College, our office will prepare your package and email an award letter to you. If we need additional documentation from you, you will be notified via email.

 

Q: How do I get in touch if I need help with financial aid?

A: The best method of contact is email, at finaid@newberry.edu. You should receive a response within 24 hours.

 

Q: How do I view and manage my financial aid documents?

A: All of your required documents are located in Wolf Den. To access your required documents, follow these directions:

  • Log in to your Wolf Den account
  • Click on the “Financial Aid” tab at the top of the home page
  • Select “Click here to access your financial aid information"
  • To view and manage required documents, click on the menu icon at the top left corner of the screen, and select “Required Forms"

 

Q: My family’s income has been impacted as a result of COVID-19. Will the Office of Financial Aid consider these changes when creating an award letter?

A: Yes! If you have experienced a loss of income due to COVID-19, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at finaid@newberry.edu with “Special Circumstance: COVID-19” in the subject line. Provide a detailed explanation of your current financial situation.
