The College Application Process

The college application process is lengthy and requires knowledge, organization, resources and time management.

Completing the application process alone without the assistance of an experienced and certified Advisor can result in missing deadlines, incomplete applications, and applications that are unappealing to college admissions committees.

Work with The College App Advisor to ensure you represent yourself well to colleges and universities and greater your chance of admission.
