Advising Packages

Comprehensive Package

Ideal for families looking for assistance with the entire college admissions process.  Students can receive guidance as early as their Freshman year of high school as to their high school course selection, GPA calculation, and college testing consultation.  Services also include college visit preparation and interview coaching, college list selection, resume and essay tutoring, and scholarship and financial aid consultation.

NEW!  Continuing Education Counseling

Adults who are considering returning to college or pursuing a new degree will find the guidance and support they need to make an educated choice.  Services begin with a career evaluation and continue through selecting a college program and the application process.  Support is also available to identify and apply for scholarships and the basics of financial aid.  Ask about package and hourly options.

Transfer Admission Advising

For students needing assistance in changing higher education institutions that have already completed some college credits.  Though similar to the comprehensive package there are some inherent differences due to the nature of the transfer process.  Students will be provided assistance in generating a college list, evaluating scholarship and financial aid opportunities, and estimating course evaluations.
