Spectrum News NY1 featured Dean of Admissions Andre Cordon in "Could Coronavirus Lead to More Students Taking Gap Years?"

Pace University, with campuses in Manhattan and Westchester, says the number of families asking about the mechanics of deferring admissions is up.

"They’re asking questions about the process of a deferral, or what if I do A, or what happens if I do B," Andre Cordon, Dean of Admission at Pace, said.

Pace will let students defer until the spring without losing their merit scholarships and, unlike in years past, allow them to take college classes elsewhere.

"We want to make this a seamless process so they don’t have the stress and worry about, if I do this will it impact me negatively? And it won’t," he said.

Students don't need to rush their decision - Pace extended the deadline for returning tuition deposits to August first. Some other schools are doing the same.
