In the ABC Nightline story, news reporter Devin Dwyer covers how the effects of COVID-19 threaten to deter America’s low-income students from their plans to enroll in college in the fall. The story features low-income and underrepresented students from across the U.S. as well as Nicole Farmer Hurd, Ph.D., founder and CEO, College Advising Corps, who speaks to this year’s potentially higher-than-normal summer melt and the devastation such a melt could have on college campuses in the 2020-2021 academic year.
