College Advising Information for the Busy Professional

TC-CAP is designed for the busy educational professional who wants to learn more information about the college application process, learn from certified college advisors about best practices in college advising, and work within an online learning community comprised of other professionals in the field.  

Dedicated counselors, educators, and other stakeholders who are specifically trained in college advisement can close the gap in knowledge around higher education and increase college opportunities for their students. Counselors are vital to a student’s academic success because they demystify the college admissions process thereby allowing students from all backgrounds to successfully explore and apply to college.

The curriculum is delivered in 15 online asynchronous modules. Please note that this is an accelerated course; students will complete two modules per week. The asynchronous model allows students to complete the modules during the designated week as their schedules permit.

The cost of the program is $400, which includes the course materials.

Who Should Apply

This program is opened to interested participants who are currently pursuing a school counseling degree, professional school counselors, college access professionals, and community stakeholders who would like to deepen their understanding and gain specialized training in the topic of college advisement with a special emphasis on high-achieving students with great financial need.
