After months of being closed due to mandatory isolation measures, colleges across the world prepare to welcome students to campus once again as fall semester approaches.

However, the virus has not yet been defeated, and this comes with considerable risk for universities entering the new normal–especially as there is a chance of a resurgence of COVID-19 at the end of the fall.

As a result, universities are exploring a variety of new processes to support admissions, course delivery, and examination in order to minimize risk. Technology will play a key role in how colleges deliver their courses in the months ahead.

Here’s how universities can leverage technological solutions to adapt to these new circumstances while maintaining efficiency and improving student experience.

Take the admissions process 100 percent online
