College Advising Corps (CAC) works to increase the number of first-generation college-going, low-income, and/or underrepresented students who apply, enter, and complete college. They do this through two innovative program models:
-In-school model: Placing well-trained, recent college graduates from our partner universities as full-time college advisers in high schools across the nation.
-Virtual model: Leveraging technology to connect well-trained, recent college graduates with students everywhere in the U.S. that technology can reach.
CAC believes that every student deserves the opportunity to enter and complete higher education. Many eAdvisers were also first-generation, low-income or underrepresented students, so they can closely relate to the barriers students may face as they apply to and enroll in the nation’s top colleges and universities.
Over the last 5 years CAC has partnered with College Point to provide virtual advising to over 27,000 students across the country. eAdvisers are based out of regional sites in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Missouri and California and they anticipate serving 7,500 this year.
