CAPlus in Central NY

We start with an education and end with success!

Six-figure student debt is becoming too common. With 53% of the 2012 college grads either unemployed or working in non-degree jobs the stakes are higher than ever and the college search process more complicated than ever. Contact College Assistance Plus for a professional consultant that has your family’s best college interests in mind, academically, socially and financially.

This video is from a CAPlus appearance on “It’s About Money”.  Take a few minutes to watch for a great education on a better way to approach the college search process. Whether you have students or grandchildren currently in high school, college, or graduate school, we can help. Contact me and I will help with your college concerns through a free phone or in-person consultation, personalized for your situation. Prior to contacting us, answer this student questionnaire so I can better answer your questions and describe strategies for you.

CAPlus will be your partner for many years:

  • Helping 9-12th grade students find a best fit college. The average student changes majors four times and spends 5.5 years as an undergraduate student. CAPlus can assist with a college major decision, offer strategies to graduate in four years, and services to secure a job with good compensation.
  • College selection and application process. During the college search, CAPlus will offer school selections that fit your budget, the student’s criteria and is a good fit academically. Many families make too narrow of a college search or are only partially informed about the colleges they visit. CAPlus services will save you time struggling with searches, campus visit strategies, essays, interviews, FAFSAs, and more.
  • Stay on track year after year. Each year throughout degree completion we help your student stay on track with their major, the finances and review your undergrad and graduate strategy each year.
  • DII/DIII NCAA sports program assistance - CAPlus can assist with sports resumes and college athletic programs.
  • Finding the right graduate program - including med school, law school, and other professional programs.
