Flint Northwestern- Michigan College Advising Corps 2014-2015

Project Name:
Flint Northwestern- Michigan College Advising Corps 2014-2015
Project Type:
The MCAC employs recent U-M graduates to work full-time in underserved schools across the state of Michigan to serve as college advisers providing college planning and preparation services to high school students and their parents. These advisers participate in an extensive training program that includes all aspects of the college preparation process. Advisers serve for terms of one to two years for which they receive a service stipend and education award to be used for student loan repayment or future graduate studies. Advisers provide one-on-one advising to students as well as school-wide programming and parent outreach. Examples of programming include assistance with application/essay writing, scholarship searching, financial aid, career exploration, goal setting, and academic planning. Data are collected in coordination with the National College Advising Corps to determine the effectiveness of the program.
