NYU College Advising Corps

NYU College Advising Corps (NYU CAC) aims to increase the number of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented high school students who enter and complete higher education.  NYU CAC places well-trained recent graduates as full-time college advisers in high-need partner high schools to help students through all steps of the college application process.  NYU CAC is a division of the national College Advising Corps. Advisers work closely with school staff and administration to foster a college-going culture within the schools they serve.  They educate and assist students in submitting financial aid applications, finding scholarships, figuring out college match and fit, revising essays, exploring careers, and preparing for the transition to college.
