Class of 2021: You’ve Got Questions.
We’ve Got Answers
We know that covid-19 has created new and unexpected challenges as you explore colleges, understand your financial aid options, and get ready to apply this fall. That’s why we’re here to connect you to additional college planning support.
We’re connecting eligible students to free virtual college planning support through nationally recognized college access partners. Our partners will provide virtual one-on-one support on everything college-related—from completing applications to finding scholarships to securing financial aid and more—all for free.
If you’re not sure what you want to do in the future, that’s totally okay. Our partner programs will work with you to think through your options and plan how to get there.
As of December 2020, CollegePoint and Bottom Line have reached their program capacity and their programs are now closed. Students can still sign up to receive free virtual college advising support with Strive for College.
How it Works
Step 1: Find a Program That's Best for You
Complete a short form to find which program(s) you’re eligible for. The form should only take students 2-3 minutes to complete. The information you provide will help us determine which program will best support you. Don’t wait— spots fill up quickly.
Step 2: Get Matched
After you complete the form, you'll get matched with the program that’s the best fit for you. To get started, we’ll direct you to the program to complete the signup process. Participation is completely up to you, and you can opt out of any program at any time.
Step 3: Receive Free College Advising Support
Once you’re selected and enrolled, you’ll be contacted by the program with specific instructions on how to start receiving personalized virtual college planning support through phone, email, text, and video chat sessions.
Students in the class of 2021 who attend high school in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories can determine their eligibility for free virtual college advising.
Virtual college planning programs are designed to guide college-bound students just like you get through the college application process.
College planning support programs are an additional resource for you, your parent or guardian, and your school counselor. The opportunity to receive college planning guidance is offered to you at absolutely no cost. These programs don’t replace the important relationship you have with your school counselor and parent or guardian. Students will decide to sign up for any program they may be eligible for and may opt out of any program at any time.
Coping with school, life, and college planning during these uncertain times is a lot. We’re here to help you.
