College advisers are recent graduates from any institution and have received their bachelor’s degrees in a variety of academic disciplines. No previous experience is required as college advisers participate in a five-week pre-service training program each summer prior to commencing service in their partner school. They are trained to advise students on how to choose a college that matches their interests and complete all processes related to college planning, admissions and financing. In addition, college advisers provide parents with the information they need to encourage and support their children’s pursuit of a postsecondary education.

College advisers are placed in high schools and are immersed in the school setting. Advisers work closely with the schools’ counseling staff and work with students both in one-on-one and group settings. College advisers do not recruit students exclusively to any college or university but help students find their “best fit” institution, wherever that may be.
