NYU College Advising Corps
The NYU College Advising Corps (NYU CAC) aims to increase the number of low-income, first-generation, underrepresented high school students who enter and complete higher education. NYU CAC places well-trained recent NYU graduates as full-time college advisers in high-need partner high schools to help students through all steps of the college application process. Advisers work closely with school staff and administration to foster a college-going culture within the schools they serve. From navigating college admissions, to securing SAT/ACT waivers and assisting students and their families with financial aid and scholarships, our advisers become experts, mentors, and student advocates.
