Real Talk HBCU Edition from College Board


We know this has been a challenging school year for students and likely not how they imagined beginning fall 2020. College Board is still committed to supporting students on their college planning journey in these virtual times. That’s why we’re launching a new initiative called Real Talk this fall! Real Talk is a virtual college exploration series designed to connect Black students with admissions representatives from colleges and universities across the country.

Our inaugural event, “Real Talk: HBCU Edition,” will take place on Thursday, October 8, at 7 p.m. ET. This will be the first event in a three-part series featuring HBCUs, Ivy League schools, and Maryland-area institutions. All grades and academic achievement levels are welcome. Although this event will cater to students, we also encourage parents, educators, and community members to participate.

Admissions representatives from eight HBCUs across the country will share pertinent information about the admissions process and campus life. They’ll answer questions in real time during the Q&A portion of the event. This will be a great way for you and your students to engage with university representatives directly!

We look forward to connecting with you soon for real talk. RSVP today and spread the word!

Date: Thursday, October 8, 2020
Time: 7 p.m. ET

The following HBCUs will be represented:

Hampton University

College App and Bullying Prevention

College App information and bullying prevention!!

Our students are preparing to apply to their dream schools, but they have to do it in the middle of a pandemic. Talk about stress!

We want to help support them, so we’re including a special segment in our upcoming October Student Voices Webinar featuring Harvard sophomore and #ICANHELP Content Intern Jordan Sanchez.

Jordan is a rising star who is not only on top of her college game, but has a book deal, a successful YouTube channel on college life, and a TikTok following of 50K+ with whom she shares school and life advice.

During the webinar, she’ll give tips for what seniors should put on their applications, how underclassmen can prepare for college applications, and share advice on how educators can support their students with the application process.

Tri-C working virtually to keep Seniors connected.

 Cuyahoga Community College is virtually continuing to help students.  The College is operating almost completely online, though we are still working on getting our Placement Testing services virtual. As of now, that is the only piece of the enrollment process that cannot be completed online. However, discussions are currently taking place and we are hoping this will be an option soon.

Here is what students can complete:

  • College Application
  • Placement Test Prep Sessions (for both English and Math)
  • FAFSA and Financial Aid
  • New Student Orientation (for those who have previously completed the placement testing)
  • Counseling Appointment through eAdvising
  • Registration assistance
  • High School transcripts – for graduating seniors we will need a final high school transcript showing graduation once the student graduates, but in the meantime if you’d like to submit an in-progress transcript we can accept that via Naviance, Parchment, etc., or in an email directly from you. For CCP students, transcripts can be emailed to

As your Tri-C College Recruiter, I am available to assist students through email, Google Voice calls, and Zoom video calls. We have worked to complete a document to assist students in successfully completing the Tri-C application (please see the attached). We are also working to create a virtual campus visit tour, so stay tuned for that.

Please take a moment to view the short video from me below. I would truly appreciate if you share it with your seniors who need help or have questions:
