How Much Does It Cost to Hire a College & Career Success Counselor?

I’m sure you’re thinking "This all sounds great, but there is no way I can afford to hire a College & Career Success Counselor. Can’t I just do it myself?"


While there are a lot of benefits to hiring a professional to guide you through the overwhelming process, technically, you CAN do it yourself.  But why leave it to chance?  Our Career and Academic Assessment Process takes the guesswork out of the "best fit" career direction for your teen, which leads to the "best fit" academic major.  


How many college students do you know who change their major at least once, maybe twice?  According to research by the National Center for Education Statistics, approximately 30% of students change their major at least once within the first three years of college.  

This indecision can lead to: 

  • Extended time to graduation

  • Extra semesters spent in school - which delays entry into the workforce

  • Credit loss and transfer issues

  • Uncertainty and confusion

  • Stress and mental health impact

  • Increased cost
