Salt Lake City College Admissions Consulting

Salt Lake City, Utah and the surrounding areas are home to a number of reputable high schools, including Woodland Hills School, Highland High, Rowland Hall, The Waterford School, Beehive Science & Technology Academy, Timpview High, Pleasant Grove High, and others. Although these schools offer excellent instruction, top-notch faculty, an abundance of resources, they are increasingly unable to provide sufficient college admissions guidance—not because of lack of competence, but because of inadequate time and mounting responsibilities in other student service areas. The National Association for College Admission Counseling recently estimated that student-to-counselor ratios at Utah high schools average approximately 550-to-1 and are as high as 1,200-to-1 in some schools. Consequently, students in the Salt Lake City metro area are often compelled to look beyond their respective high schools to secure help with course and extracurricular planning, college list development, college application completion, college essays, financial aid, and several other tasks associated with the college admissions and planning process. This is why many Salt Lake City area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions offers expert college counselors and admissions consultants who are committed to supplementing the valuable work of Salt Lake City school counselors by providing the proactive college admissions support that Salt Lake City metro students and their families require to successfully navigate the college admissions process. With nearly 15 years of experience in college admissions and planning, College Transitions counselors have helped students earn admission into the best colleges across the United States, including many throughout the west and beyond, such as Reed College, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, Stanford University, Harvey Mudd College, Pitzer College, Pomona College, Occidental College, University of Southern California, Columbia University, Princeton University and numerous other competitive institutions of higher education. We are proud of our commitment to the Salt Lake City metro area and look forward to continuing to help Salt Lake City students identify and matriculate at the best colleges for them.

In recent years, College Transitions college admissions counselors have provided college admissions consulting and support to families living in Woods Cross, Bountiful, Draper, Holladay, Centerville, Ogden, Provo, Spanish Fork, Pleasant Grove, and additional locations throughout the Salt Lake City metro area and beyond.

“College Transitions was responsive, establishing a great rapport with our son, and keeping the process moving in a friendly and helpful way...fine tuning the essays, error checking he applications, and available to answer panicked questions almost around the clock. Sam was accepted into his first choice, The University of Chicago, a school that had seemed out of reach at the beginning of the process.”
