Graduate Continuing Studies
The landscape of college admissions is ever changing. Professionals who work with students in the transition from high school to college are aware of the need for post-secondary training and information that is up-to-date and comprehensive in the areas of the college admission process, career development, counseling special populations, and information on financial aid and scholarships. Adequately counseling students and their parents is of paramount importance particularly for first generation college students and other underrepresented populations in higher education.
