Prepping for College in Uncertain Times

As we all know too well, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has left no part of society untouched. Given the uncertainty of whether colleges will re-open this fall for in-person classes, coupled with the new financial challenges brought on by the pandemic, many families are facing difficult decisions in the coming days and weeks.

That’s why Southland has developed several solutions to help you.

Resource Hub

With all of the misinformation, we wanted to provide some clear guidance on topics relevant to our college-bound families and members. With information ranging from college planning during the pandemic to advice on negotiating with a college for more financial aid, our hub is full of helpful, relevant information. Students and parents can access pages on topics like: Managing Your Loans and Navigating College Planning during the Coronavirus Pandemic, as well as Appealing Your Award Letter.
