In the spring of 2020 as the pandemic took hold, schools across the nation at all levels had to quickly shift from providing in-person learning to remote instruction. This affected the learning environment and opportunities for kids to excel and showcase their talent in college applications.  As a result, colleges and universities across our nation had to re-adjust their admissions standards and revisit their processes.

In this podcast, Geoff Williams, 529 Specialist at John Hancock Investment Management joins us to share how today’s students can prepare for the shifting landscape of college admissions and how to impress admissions officers.

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses, summary prospectuses and 529 Product Program Description, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing. Depending on your state of residence, there may be an in-state plan that offers tax and other benefits which may include financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors. Before investing in any state's 529 plan, investors should consult a tax advisor. If withdrawals from 529 plans are used for purposes other than qualified education, the earnings will be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty in addition to federal and, if applicable, state income tax.
