4 Ways CollegeChoiceToday Simplifies the College Application Process
The world of higher education is an exciting frontier and yet entering that world can seem an overwhelming prospect. After all, there are admission fees to pay, application essays to write, financial forms to file, and college tours to schedule. As a parent, assisting your son or daughter in applying for college could easily become your new, full-time job. And it’s all so unfamiliar—the college admission process has changed drastically since Baby Boomers and even Gen Xers attended their Alma maters.
College Choice Today offers a variety of services to students and parents, but there are 4 specific ways CCT can simplify the college admission process and provide clearly measured benefits that will save you time, stress, and money.
- Professional Advice: Most high schools employ college and/or career counselors who are charged with assisting hundreds, if not thousands, of students in their college search. However, this process is complex, and students truly need expert advice when deciding what schools match best with their individual interests and talents. Our team of professionals can give your child the individualized attention and guidance he or she needs in order to make the right college choice.
- Career interest assessment: We know that 80% of students will not designate a major when they begin their semester, which means many students pick a college without knowing whether that school will fit their eventual career goals. At CCT, we use a proprietary assessment to understand and determine career interests, and then we align those interests to the appropriate field of study and the right college. We do this by searching 1000’s of options in schools and careers – using over 90 different data resources, including the Department of Labor and Department of Education.
- Finances Assistance: Did you know the average application fee is $41 per school? When most students apply to at least 5 schools, the fees begin to add up. There’s no need to tackle admission essays, applications, and paperwork on your own. Our team keeps track of the complicated web of details, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks. In addition, CCT can provide all the information you need to make the right financial decisions—we even provide you with a college cost estimator and a financial planner.
- College visits: A particular school may look great in a college brochure, but it can be difficult to visualize the unique feel that comes with each college campus. CCT provides online college tours so you can decide which locations you want to visit in person. By helping you narrow your focus, we can save you thousands on unnecessary travel expenses.
Deciding which college to attend may be one of the most important decisions you make with your child before he or she ascends into adulthood. We know how important it is to get this decision right, and that’s why College Choice Today is here to help you with every aspect of the admission process.
