After enrolling and completing our detailed questionnaire, you will be matched with an expert counselor based on your unique attributes and college-related interests.

Schedule your introductory session.

We will meet at a time that best accommodates your busy schedule. We’re available during weekdays, as well as on nights and weekends. Introductory sessions are devoted to developing admission strategies, reviewing initial tasks to be completed, and addressing any questions about the admissions process or college in general.

Learn about you.

Through a series of subsequent meetings and by administering personality and interest assessments, we learn more about you, help you learn more about your own potential academic and career pathways.

Learn about your prospective colleges.

We will work with you to develop a list of prospective colleges that present you with the best fit. We will leave no stone unturned as we draw on our extensive knowledge of literally thousands of colleges and universities to identify those schools that will help you maximize your undergraduate experience.

Work through the application process.

Our team will be with you every step of the way as you complete applications, write essays, and coordinate supplemental materials. Our deep understanding of the application process will help ensure that you complete each of these steps in the most efficient, timely, and advantageous manner, with an eye toward enhancing your chances for admission.

Secure financial aid.

Regardless of your financial background, we advise you on how to maximize your eligibility for need-based financial aid, while maximizing your prospects of procuring merit-based (i.e., non-need-based) financial aid.

Make your decision.

After receiving your admission offers, it’s time to decide where you will ultimately have the most meaningful, enjoyable, and successful four years.  College Transitions will aid you in making an informed final decision that accounts for all of your academic, financial, and personal needs.

Prepare for transition.

In addition to our role as admission consultants, we are also higher education researchers, and possess extensive knowledge about the aids and obstacles to a successful postsecondary transition. Using our unique background and expertise, we will assist you in getting ready to head to campus in the fall (or spring), primed for a successful start to your collegiate career.

Work toward success.

College Transitions remains committed to your success as you embark on your college journey.  After all, the selection/admissions process is only a prelude to a fulfilling and empowering college experience.  Whether you have questions about credit load, summer class options, course selection, choosing a major, negotiating financial aid, or accessing campus services, we will be there to provide expert guidance.  Our commitment to your success is our promise to you.
