The onset of the coronavirus emergency has upended the college admissions process for current high school juniors and seniors. Students in 11th grade aren't able to participate in sports, go to in-person classes or take standardized tests, and colleges are aware of these changing circumstances. To mitigate that last issue, many institutions are going test optional for the 2020-2021 admissions period.
