Services Offered

My College Helper offers a variety of specialized services to meet the different needs of students and families:

initial Consultation Meeting 

Student and parents complete surveys and forms and provide an unofficial transcript and class schedule in advance of a 90-minute meeting to discuss strategy, timeline and recommendations for college planning. A detailed follow-up report after the meeting will offer links and resources for continued college search and planning.  The fee will be applied to the Comprehensive Plan (below) if the family later chooses that option.
