Pre-pandemic, several U.S. colleges and universities were exploring test-optional admissions. With in-person learning suspended globally and testing centers closed over the past year, both students and institutions have had to navigate the test-optional admissions world. Please join us as we discuss current trends and how they are impacting student choices.

NAFSA Government Connection events offer an online forum for NAFSA members and international educators to interact directly with federal agency officials about topics affecting their work; their international students and scholars; their outgoing study abroad students; and their institution.

Registration for this event will close Tuesday, June 29 at 12:00 PM ET. A recording will be made available after the event.
