Certificate Program in College Admissions and Career Planning

Students who receive support and advice during the college planning and admissions process are more likely to enter a college that meets their needs and interests, and they are therefore more likely to remain in and succeed at college. Given the systemic lack of adequate college counseling resources in public middle- and high schools, it’s not surprising that more and more students and their parents seek outside help.

Our certificate program opens the gate to several career paths in the field of college admissions advising and career planning. You will gain the knowledge and skills needed to serve your clients well.

Learn admissions requirements for public, private, local, national and international institutions; financial aid options and planning; techniques to advise special populations; counseling skills; self-appraisal instruments and interpretation; uses of technology in college and career planning; and more. You’ll also hear about how you can get started.
