We Are Still Here

As we continue to monitor the developments occurring due to the novel coronavirus, we would like to take the opportunity to provide another update to you about our College Now operations at this time.
To ensure the safety of our staff, students, clients, their families, and the community, we are continuing to work remotely and follow the guidance provided by the Governor, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, the City of Cleveland, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and leaders from our local healthcare institutions.
  • College Now school-based advisors continue to serve students via tele-advising while all K-12 schools are closed throughout the state. Our team has already helped students complete the FAFSA, shared information and guidance on scholarship applications, and more through phone calls, text messages, and email outreach to students. Advisors are also providing targeted outreach to senior students to ensure that they have the information and tools they need to finalize their postsecondary plans.
  • Our Resource Center staff continue consulting with clients via tele-advising, as well, and are prepared to offer guidance and support to students of all ages, including assistance with Federal student loan debt following the provisions set forth in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by the Federal government in response to COVID-19. An appointment can be scheduled using the link here.
  • The Mentoring Team has reached their goal of recruiting mentors to pair with our incoming class of scholarship recipients this fall . All orientations will be held virtually. You can still apply to be a mentor on our website or encourage your friends and family to take part in the program.
  • We continue to collect resources and supports for students and community members who are affected by COVID-19 which can be found on our website. We know that disruptions in college and university operations are causing massive changes for students working to finish their courses this semester. Our staff has been reaching out to our students of all ages to ensure they have the resources necessary to finish their semesters, including technology, food, and housing. We encourage students and/or mentors to contact College Now as soon as possible if you are concerned about yours or your student’s housing or ability to remain enrolled.
We cannot repeat it enough: College Now is still here to support our students, clients, staff, and their families. You can continue to be sure that our work will not stop while we make modifications to ensure all are safe and healthy.
We will share updates as we have them as we continue to follow health officials’ recommendations. You can continue to contact us via phone or email (216.241.5587 or [email protected]).
As always, we appreciate your support and understanding as we all navigate this together.
